David Cameron joins contractors on Building Britain campaign

The government has relaunched its Building Britain social media campaign to highlight the construction industry’s contribution to the UK’s economic growth.

Contractors including Balfour Beatty, Kier and Simons Group have participated in the #BuildingBritain campaign so far.

Crossrail has also shared digital artwork celebrating the campaign (pictured) and thousands have visited both the Tumblr and Pinterest sites set up by the Cabinet Office.

Prime minister David Cameron said: “It’s fantastic to see so many people and businesses getting behind the #BuildingBritain campaign – showcasing Britain’s world class manufacturing and construction industry.

“We have committed to investing £100bn on infrastructure projects, as part of our long-term economic plan to back business, create more jobs and secure a brighter future for Britain.

“In the past year alone, construction has grown more than 3 per cent. We’re proud of that achievement and this campaign celebrates the people and projects making this happen.”
