Willmott Dixon has entered a three-year strategic partnership with the UK Innovation Corridor (UKIC), a science and technology region between London and Cambridge which includes international businesses, academia and start-ups.

The Hitchin-based construction company will sit on the UKIC board alongside the 15 local authorities and six universities currently represented. The aim is to increase collaboration between the public and private sectors and drive innovation, growth and cohesion across the region.

The announcement coincided with the publication of the UKIC Growth Plan, which forecasts that the region is on course to almost double the size of its economy – from £189bn to £350bn by 2050.

Stewart Brundell, managing director at Willmott Dixon for North London and the Northern Home Counties, explained that the company’s new relationship with the UKIC underscored its commitment to connectivity, partnerships and seeing the region grow and prosper.

Brundell stressed the need for businesses to leverage their collective strengths and learn from one another.

“In this complex, fast-moving and volatile world, no individual business can resolve the challenges that we have alone,” Brundell said. Willmott Dixon aims to foster an environment where “collaboration can thrive and innovation can flourish”, he added.
