Aluminium is a very young metal, extracted for the first time in 1854. Commercially produced as a precious metal from 1886, its industrial production for civil applications only took off in the 1950’s.

The stunning Art Deco-inspired Empire State Building in New York was the first building to use anodised aluminium components back in 1931.

The government’s current work to reform the electricity market will determine the shape of the UK’s power sector for decades to come. The UK has an opportunity to become a world leader in clean, renewable energy. But choices made in the coming months and years could lead to continued dominance of high carbon fossil fuel power generation. Or to greater dependence on risky nuclear power.

With the UK government soon to outline its strategy to implement Building Information Modelling (Bim) on all public sector building projects, the design of the built environment will change drastically. Advanced computer modelling is transforming the design process of buildings worldwide. It's predicted to save the industry at least 10% on build costs at £1bn to £2.5bn a year, when used on all major projects. The new way of working is expected to significantly reduce waste and energy usage to enhance sustainability in buildings.
