The construction and property industry is in a fascinating place. On one side there is major disruption and uncertainty with skills, housing, BREXIT and more creating massive challenges which need to be overcome. On the other hand innovative smart solutions are offering ways to combat barriers, whilst ambitious infrastructure projects including HS2, Northern Powerhouse Rail and the East-West Express between Oxford and Cambridge are creating excitement in cities across the UK which is driving homes, jobs and investment opportunities.
