A new Innovation Factory for the construction industry has opened today, where companies can test new products and techniques.
The centre, located in Lanarkshire, will allow anyone within the construction industry to access workshops filled with state-of-the-art production and prototyping equipment
The £3m centre, located at Hamilton International Technology Park in Lanarkshire, will allow anyone within the construction industry to access 30,000 sq ft of workshop space filled with state-of-the-art production and prototyping equipment and technology.

Construction businesses of all sizes will be able to use the facility to test and develop new products, processes, systems and solutions, from early stage ideas through to full commercialisation. The building will also provide a range of collaboration and training facilities to allow organisations in the private, public and academic sectors to share knowledge and information.

The centre is the product of Construction Scotland, a leadership organisation for the construction industry in Scotland.

Commenting on the opening of the Innovation Factory, Stephen Good, Chief Executive of Construction Scotland Innovation Centre, said:

“The Innovation Factory is something that the team here at CSIC has been working towards since we launched in October 2014. It will provide a dynamic environment, away from the conventional building site, where the Scottish construction industry can innovate, take risks, explore and learn in a safe and supported environment.”

“We have seen a steady increase in construction innovation over the past few years, and I hope that this new facility will inspire even more people within the industry to think outside the box.”
