The big rise in house building is beginning to fuel significant growth right across the construction sector. A jump of 33% in industry new orders during the April-June period was the biggest increase since records began in 2005 and means medium term growth is looking more secure.
Vince Cable announced a new £150m fund to boost low carbon building, whilst current new wind and solar farms construction is already contributing to the improved outlook.
Some economists are flagging up concerns that big house price increases in the short term could get us back into a damaging debt cycle. However, UK house building rate still needs to double to meet demand.
Companies that have invested in new products during the recession are now doing well. One example is Frame Wise who are launching a new timber panel solution at Timber Expo. This has also just won the 2013 TTJ Timber Innovation Award so well done.
