Issue 37



“Fundamentally, I don’t believe this

is a problem you can solve directly

with money. It demands fresh ideas,

which is where this Innovation

Fund comes in.”

The fund encourages applications

of up to £250k for each proposal,

primarily from the Berkeley supply

chain and particularly from SMEs.

Applications from Berkeley staff,

industry bodies and educational

establishments are also welcome to

apply, with collaboration between

any two or more of these sectors

actively encouraged.

Berkeley Group has enjoyed

numerous success at the Scheme’s

annual National Site Awards,

achieving two Most Considerate

Site Runner-up Awards as well

as a clutch of Gold, Silver and

Bronze. This year, their Roman

House project was awarded

the prestigious title of Most

Considerate Site 2015.

The group cemented its

commitment to the Scheme by

becoming an Associate Member

over a decade ago; pledging to

register all of its sites and abide by

the Code of Considerate Practice.

Rob Perrins, Managing Director of the Berkeley Group, speaking at the launch event



to find out more

about the initiative and to

apply for the Innovation Fund.

The Berkeley Innovation

Fund is not only good

news for the industry

as a whole but for

individuals and groups

whose bright ideas can

become tomorrow’s

best practice.

The Scheme’s aim is

to improve the image

of the construction

industry and this can

only be achieved by

encouraging and

celebrating innovative
