Keystone Lintels explore what 2019 holds for the Construction Industry?

  • 9 Jan 2019

Keystone Lintels have spoken to Lee Parry, Construction Director at Keepmoat Homes, to find out what the new year holds for them and their plans for growth in 2019.

He talks about how the use of modular construction will see them deliver 4,000 homes and their plans to tackle the skills shortage facing the construction industry this year.

“Our growth plans for the business will see us delivering over 4,000 homes, 660 of which will come from our Midlands region, by the end of FY19,” he said.

“To deliver this growth, and through our partnership with ilke Homes, we’ve already started incorporating the use of modular homes on our developments in Gedling and Shirebrook.

“The main benefit of this, from a construction perspective, is we’re able to produce high quality, affordable new homes whilst maintaining our delivery schedule regardless of the weather.

“Like others in our industry, the main challenges we’re experiencing are the skills and materials shortages.

“However, we’ve already implemented various initiatives to address this. For example, as members of the 5% club, we’ve made a commitment that at least 5% of our work force will be made up of trainees, apprentices or graduates.

“Currently we’re at 9% and have plans in place to continue encouraging and supporting people into the industry.”
