  • The IPA estimate the need for approximately 543-600,000 workers per year over the next two years to deliver the profile of investment in the pipeline - approximately 60% of which are in construction sector occupations.
  • Over the next decade, the IPA estimate a planned and projected £700-775bn overall investment in infrastructure projects across the country. 
  • £64 billion of this investment in the next two years is through Modern Methods of Construction. This supports our Transforming Infrastructure Performance (TIP) programme, which the IPA intends to embed into business as usual practices by 2025.

About the NICP

The National Infrastructure and Construction Pipeline sets out planned procurements, planned and projected investment, and workforce requirements in construction and infrastructure over the next decade.

This is the most comprehensive Pipeline that has ever been published. By government and industry being aligned in our ambition of adopting the most modern technologies for major projects, it will make public services more efficient, innovative and sustainable, reducing cost to the taxpayer.

The overall pipeline is not a statement of need or a commitment to undertake all or any specific projects or programmes shown. All of the publicly funded elements of the infrastructure and construction pipeline represent announced government projects or spending commitments, in line with funding agreed for the 2021 Spending Review period (which set departmental budgets to 2024/25). Public spending beyond 2024/25 will be confirmed within the next Spending Review. In a number of other sectors, such as energy, the decision to go ahead with individual projects will be determined by the market.
