Construction output on the rise… For now

construction industry house building2018 has been up and down for the Construction Industry in the UK, mainly due to the bad weather earlier in the year. This has meant construction output has staggered throughout the year, however, over the past few months the industry has seen a higher output and a slight rise in the industry.

Uncertainty around construction work due to Brexit has caused issues and the ongoing skills shortage has also played its part in the industry. Output in recent months has been better, but this may be short lived due to a falling number of new orders, and Brexit and the skills shortage are to blame for this.

With the government planning on more houses being built every year to handle the ever-growing housing crisis, this is putting extra strain on the construction industry to meet targets. The skills shortage that is affecting all trades means that construction firms are struggling to get the staff and are therefore not applying for big jobs with confidence.

However, under all this there is some GOOD NEWS. The skills shortage opens up doors for jobs and opportunities within the construction industry!
