R&D Tax Credit for Construction

Building strong foundations through innovation!

Research & Development in the Construction industry


The US construction industry is a leading innovator within the global marketplace, which has been achieved by leveraging an extremely knowledgeable and competent workforce. An increased use of advanced technology such as augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), robotics, and cloud-based collaborations on construction projects have greatly enhanced the innovation landscape in this sector.

Essentially, R&D in construction occurs organically when problem solving techniques are implemented to resolve day-to-day obstacles. R&D can take place during different phases of a project, including initiation, design conceptualization, development of techniques and launch, making construction companies ideal candidates for the Research & Development (R&D) Tax Credit.

Examples of R&D activity in Construction

  • Custom decommissioning solutions for the nuclear industry
  • Development of construction solutions or processes that reduce construction time on site
  • Development of new materials or techniques to meet the requirements of the construction project
  • Appreciable enhancements to an existing piling solution so that it can be applied to a unique and demanding geology
  • Appreciable enhancements to the BIM environment to improve capabilities and work flow
  • Use of new materials or process for a project never before attempted due to technological risks
  • Development of innovative means and methods for construction
  • Designing and implementing alternative structural or MEP systems

How we can help

Many construction companies are unaware that their day-to-day operations could qualify for the lucrative Research & Development (R&D) Tax Credit. The credit offsets a company’s payroll and/or income tax liability on a dollar-for-dollar basis, allowing construction businesses to recoup some of their R&D spending.

Leyton’s tax and technical experts are motivated to help companies in this sector robustly claim the R&D Tax Credit. Our dedicated construction team is comprised of highly experienced structural engineers, scientists, tax accountants, and attorneys, all of whom are motivated to deliver maximum financial benefits to our construction clients.
