The ‘World of What If…’

What if a story could spark change?

The Construction Innovation Hub is launching an interactive site entitled ‘The World of What if…?’. The site poses a range of questions prompting audiences to consider a progressive society where sustainable innovations within construction help to improve social, environmental and economic outcomes.

Visitors can navigate through the individual illustrated ‘story islands’, each featuring a question related to a current initiative, or research study that the Hub is collaborating on with partners across the UK.

Every week for three weeks, starting from Thursday 4 November, we will unveil new ‘story islands’ in our social media channels.
