<h4>Innovation in structural engineering – the art of the possible</h4>

Innovation in structural engineering – the art of the possible

The UK construction industry is facing the challenge of meeting the demand for new and refurbished buildings in a low- or near zero carbon world with dwindling resources. If we are to meet this challenge, and stay within the limits of the UK’s carbon budgets, we believe that significant innovation in construction is critical. However, the industry is often perceived as slow to innovate, and frequently described as both conservative and risk averse. In this light, this article asks the question: how can engineers deliver successful innovation to construction projects? The first half of the article introduces a framework describing the impacts of innovation in construction. The second half explores how risk and uncertainty from innovation was managed in a case study from our own experiences – the recently completed Stavros Niarchos Foundation Cultural Centre (SNFCC) in Athens, Greece.
