In a week where we are expected to see temperature records broken, the warning on ensuring that homes are fit for purpose now and in the future seems all the more pertinent. It should also serve as a reminder that despite current stresses and strains, the economy and the construction industry, in particular, should stay focussed on sustainability targets.
Over the last couple of years, the construction industry has developed more of a collaborative working environment. It’s great to see Build UK promoting a collaborative approach to managing cost inflation. We believe that a team approach to understanding not just the cause (and impacts) of inflation, but also the possible mitigation strategies will be crucial over the coming period.
