Spring / Summer 2014
It’s been a difficult few years for the construction sector, which has been slower than some sectors to recover from the economic downturn. However, as our order book improves, at long last it seems we are over the worst. Certainly, infrastructure projects are gaining momentum and the housing sector is bouncing back and as a result we’ve had one of the busiest starts to a year for quite some time. Of course, construction and the wider UK economy still has some way to go to before we return to pre-2008/09 levels and there are some who remain cautious, but I would like to think that things are on the up and it certainly doesn’t hurt to be positive!
