Sensicon Blue and Green Logo
Our award-winning team works with academics, corporations and investors to transform ideas into reality, accelerate product development, and bring your innovations to market in record time.
The construction industry is responsible for 37%* of greenhouse gas emissions, yet only 5% of global venture capital investment is directed towards architecture, engineering and construction innovation.
As venture partners, our mission is to work with entrepreneurs and investors to reverse these statistics and drive impactful change in the built environment.

why we do it.

Skills & labour shortages
A declining workforce and skills shortage, that’s been compounded by Brexit and COVID 19.
High carbon emissions

50% of carbon emissions in the UK come from the
construction and use of infrastructure assets.

Over specified
Structures in the UK are often over-designed by engineers to protect steel reinforcement.
Expensive alternatives
Current cement replacements are expensive and don’t meet structural design codes.
Legacy processes

Outdated processes and specifications in the construction industry results in a lack of productivity and innovation.

Rising steel costs

The cost of steel reinforcement in Europe has gone up by over 77% since 2019 – and is still rising.
