Even if you’re not a usual watcher of the news or a follower of British politics, you might have seen the controversy which has followed the Hung Parliament result of last week’s General Election. Construction as an industry has some very real changes coming its way because of the oncoming Brexit negotiations. Essentially, real changes are coming to the British Construction industry for a great many reasons. Whether or not a Hard or a Soft Brexit is instigated is vital to very many construction companies in North Wales and beyond, as it directly affects supply and labour.


Saying that, Brexit is old news and only part of the problem. The British Construction industry is even more affected by the result of the general election and the hung parliament by the fact that Labour, the Conservatives, and also the Liberal Democrats have all dedicated large portions of their manifestos to construction in the UK, and therefore there are very many construction companies in North Wales and all across the UK which are waiting upon the news from parliament with a great deal of interest for what is and is not to come.


The same can be said for organizations such as the Building Services Research and Information (BSRIA) an organisation which has been part of the British construction scene since the end of WW2 and exists to help the construction industry in Britain benefit from the latest research. Essentially, their stance is simple – homes are desperately needed throughout the country, most particularly affordable homes and starter homes for a generation of people which are trying unsuccessfully to get onto the housing ladder.


Building homes is a balance between quality and quantity. No matter who is elected in the General election, both political parties must understand that a focus on volume makes quality more important than ever before, and may very well be the key to handling the housing crisis for the long term, rather than patching it up by building what may be viewed in 30 years as costly slums or soulless estates reminiscent of our current legacy from the 1970s.
