It’s certainly been a tough year in construction and 2012 looks to be just as challenging as the Government tries to rebalance the country’s books and deal with the Eurozone fallout.
But the festive season should be just that so let’s try and lift the economic gloom with a few reasons for construction to look forward to 2012…….
George Osborne and Co have finally realised construction is a good way to grow the economy. Bored with pouring cash in bankers’ pockets, the Government now sees infrastructure and housing as a vital kick-start to growth. It’s just a shame they took so long to work it out.
The Olympics will shine a spotlight on what the UK construction industry can achieve and enhance our reputation around the globe.
Even if construction fails to grow in 2012, the industry is still worth more than £100bn a year which represents a massive amount of work up for grabs.
Gloomy economic forecasts are just that – forecasts. The number crunchers are wrong on a regular basis and provide a bewildering range of predictions. If forecasters were always right they’d be living it up on a beach somewhere rather than hunched over their calculators.
