These sectors are beholden to regulations and standards, which are continuously evolving to consider climate change — for example UK Government Department for Levelling-Up, Housing and Communities;  National House-Building Council (NHBC). Awareness of these regulatory requirements is key for BGS to develop products that allow users to easily interpret geohazard data in relation to these standards. Two important areas of interest relate to raw materials and geohazards.

Besides mitigation of risk for future developments, the maintenance of existing infrastructure is also of interest to this sector.
