Its been a good year for the building industry and the latest infographic from Quantic shows why 2015 will be even better and the demand for skilled construction professionals is set to soar.
Last month hotel, leisure and sport construction was up 35% and growth will continue with Glenigan predicting overall project starts will be up by 7.3% next year.
The Saint-Gobain debate last month indicated that many believe we can expect a number of key mega mergers in the new year as the industry restructures for long term growth.
And well done to all those in the industry who have supported charities throughout the year, giving their time, money, products and skills.
