Sample text

Buildings could be 'glued' together, giving stronger, faster and cleaner construction techniques. The essence of nanotechnology is the ability to create large structures from the bottom up, that is by starting with materials at a molecular level an building them up. The structures created 'nanostructures' are the smallest human-made objects whose building blocks are understood from first principles in terms of their biological, chemical and physical properties. This comprehensive understanding of the make-up of nanostructures has allowed scientists to create very strong materials at a fraction of the size and weight of traditional materials.

Economies, culture, organisations and interest groups are becoming linked together across national boundaries. Sources of saving and investment, capital markets, that were once distinct, have now become coupled together with the consequence of near-universal standards of performance of capital assets. Investors want the best they can find anywhere in the world. There is a shift from public to private sector financing of infrastructure and the utilities. Construction sectors around the world cannot be immune from the global drivers that have an impact upon the economy and quality of life.
