Newtecnic appears alongside Prime Minister Theresa May in the 2016/17 Parliamentary Review. Established by former minister The Rt Hon David Curry in 2010, The Parliamentary Review’s September release is now a key fixture in the political calendar. Building design engineers Newtecnic feature alongside the Prime Minister and a small number of ‘outstanding organisations’ in a document that looks back on the year in the construction industry and at Westminster.

The main aim of the Review is to showcase best practice as a learning tool to the public and private sectors. The Review also contains best practice construction industry experiences and advice with Newtecnic CEO, Andrew Watts, citing examples of the economic, commercial, technical, creative and social benefits of collaboration around digital assets.

Across all policy areas, The Parliamentary Review is sent to more than half a million leading policymakers. The articles in the Review act as both a blueprint for success and a template for reform.

The Prime Minister commented that, “This year’s Parliamentary Review follows a significant year in British politics” and this is reflected in the articles from leading journalists and best-practice representatives alike.

The PM’s former cabinet colleague, Sir Eric Pickles, who was recently appointed Chairman of the Review, said, “It has never been more important for government to hear the views of business and the public sector in a constructive forum. It is also a vital time to share best practice and progress.”

The Parliamentary Review’s director Daniel Yossman concurred, saying, “Newtecnic and other hardworking organisations from across the country have come together to make this year’s Review possible. Sharing knowledge and insight with peers and government is essential work and I am delighted that this year’s Review will reach every corner of the British economy.”

Andrew Watts, Newtecnic CEO said, “It is encouraging to see political and industry leaders discussing construction project productivity issues in this year’s Parliamentary Review. We are proud to share our views and experiences on digitisation with such a distinguished and influential audience. I hope that this publication, together with alignments of commercial and government aspirations, will help advance construction practices to benefit all of society.”
