So where is the future for us?

Let’s start with Professor Brain Cox and his wonderful programme on Sunday evenings Wonders of  the Solar System, all burnt up in the sun is the most likely outcome but that’s billions and billions and billions (or whatever he says)…….of years away.

By the way is it just me or does he send you to sleep too, and you have to watch the programme again to understand it?

Well enough of that, we did our annual State of The Economy Survey again this year and one of the questions we posed was where do you think the work is going to come from this year?

And without giving names of anyone away, I thought you all might like to see the most popular answers we received and whether you agree with them or not, so here goes…..

1. High End Residential –and/or high income private clients with money to invest
2. Refurbishment – all sectors
3. Retail
4. Schools, including Free schools
5. Student accommodation
6. Hotels
7. New office developments
8. Health
9. Regeneration of brownfiled sites
10. Infrastructure – power, rail, utilities

Now if any of these rock your boat or are in an area you were or were not thinking about you’ve got some like minded people out there. The wittiest comment of them all however I liked was ‘Finding oil!’

All I can say is the very best of luck for what is going to be another challenging time ahead for everyone associated with the construction sector
