Forticrete responds to recent Autumn Budget

  • 6 Dec 2017

Forticrete invests in anticipation of a growth in demand following the recent Autumn Budget Statement from the Chancellor.

Housing featured heavily in the statement from Phillip Hammond, announcing new financial support for housing over the next five years.

In addition, by 2020 there is an aim to build 300,000 houses on average each year, as opposed to the previous goal of 250,000. Using sites where planning permission has already been granted will be key to meeting this goal in time, and the planning reforms will make more land available for planning developments.

Material Specification will also be key to enabling the goal to be met in time – choosing sustainable, cost-effective alternatives that can be deployed and guaranteed to stand the test of time will be a win-win for everyone in the supply chain.

Ease of deployment is vital to Forticrete as its products are largely sold to the new build market. This is in response to a need for solutions that are easy to use and appropriate to the current climate where there is a well-documented skills shortage in the construction sector.

Forticrete has invested consistently over the last decade to bring additional roof tile capacity to the market, in anticipation of the growth in demand for products. The company aims to ensure that house builders and architects have all the materials they require to do the job.
