Andy Sommerville, Director at Search Acumen, comments:
“The UK construction industry stands on a threshold – advancing forwards to achieve new heights or slipping backwards to stagnation. Growth has been slow, but the UK construction market still stands tall in Europe. While the volume of construction orders has advanced only incrementally in the past year, the value of orders is at an all-time high and so is the number of construction firms in operation.
”The new found clarity over the political situation has started to provide some necessary reassurance but we also need decisive action to ensure we take a step in the right direction. Space will always be a premium in the UK, especially in the biggest cities. Data led solutions can give us powerful insights into what land is available and how best to use it. The UK’s construction industry is world leading. Let’s have the confidence to step forward and use the tools at our disposal to seize the opportunities ahead.”
