Brexit signpost

The situation is changing all the time, and it can be hard to keep up.


For those of us in the building trade, the Brexit talking points are around three main areas:  

  1. A potential slowdown in the housing market
  2. Building materials. Will some products take longer to get hold of or cost more?
  3. People. 23% of the UK construction workforce comes from the EU


And with growing uncertainty of exactly how and when Brexit will pan out, these topics feel like they’re gaining momentum.
