Construction Industry on the up after Housebuilding Boom

construction industry house buildingThe Housing Crisis is an ongoing problem in the UK with more homes needed across the UK every year. On a regular basis the government are writing up new plans to increase housebuilding, however, due to the construction industry having a skills shortage it is causing problems along the way.

Earlier this year, the construction industry had several problems with the ongoing skills shortage and also the bad weather affecting the speed of work due to building sites being covered in a blanket of snow. With this happening on more than one occasion it caused problems in February and March of this year. However, it looks like the construction industry is now finally on the up.

The Construction Industry increased massively in the month of July and this was heavily down to a much-welcomed output of housebuilding across the UK. Also, this has increased jobs and employment to higher levels than the previous two and a half years. Improvement with in the industry has also boosted contract negotiations for new builds.

With more work being planned and the housebuilding sector booming, workers are going to be needed across all trades up and down the UK. It opens up a spectacular opportunity for those seeking new careers. With jobs open and skilled workers needed, the chance to get work and start a new career is better than ever before.
