Welcome to Clay Technology, the member magazine of the International Clay Technology Association.
The magazine is available thrice yearly and features are visible to members once you are logged in.
In this issue, themed around technology innovation, we look at the collective responsibility and the need for innovative approaches at all levels to deliver improved efficiency, productivity and sustainability in manufacturing and the construction process.
In an article, from Construction Automation, for example, Hannah ChantIer describes how the UK Government’s ambition to “build better, build beautiful” requires an alternative take on the oft-lauded Modern Methods of Construction.
She says, ‘As bricks, blocks and mortar housing remain popular in the UK...onsite automated solutions such as robotics need to run alongside innovations in offsite construction’. This could also improve the attractiveness of construction as a profession to a new pool of skilled workers.
