In this month’s edition of Construction Global, we look at the increased focus on research and development within construction, alongside HMRC’s guidelines. Innovation within new developments should be rewarded as a result of an increased need to supply new techniques, methodologies and solutions within building.

Also featured is a piece on how gaming is influencing the construction industry, with research currently undertaken by Heriot-Watt University’s RAE Centre of Excellence in Sustainable Building Design, combining technology with 3D real world environments to train construction workers in situations which would otherwise be high risk.

Our list of top Australian buildings, chosen from the recent Innovation and Excellence Awards is also included. The buildings are innovative and have provided increased benefits to the Australian community through their creative and spacious designs.

We sincerely hope you enjoy the issue, and as always, please tweet your feedback to @ConstructionGL
