Construction Scotland Innovation Centre

Stand G36

Construction Scotland Innovation Centre (CSIC) is one of eight industry-led, demand driven Innovation Centres linking business, university experts and public sector to support businesses in delivering transformational change in construction.

In September 2017, CSIC launched “The Innovation Factory”, a 35,000sq ft prototyping & training facility near Glasgow, giving the UK construction industry open access to over £2M of state-of-the-art digital manufacturing equipment.

With technology and expertise readily available to support collaboration projects that enable industry to “make” innovation (as opposed to just “talk” innovation), the Innovation Factory equipment ranges from AR/VR technology to an offsite manufacturing cell, a 13m vacuum press for Cross Laminated Timber production to large scale multi-material 3D printing capacity, and industrial robotics to specialist composite masonry and non-woven fibre machinery capable of batch manufacturing a range of high recycled content products.
