Crisis within the Construction Industry

Published: 08/02/2021 By Jane Price

Construction is an industry that has always experienced high rates of business stress, with many businesses often waiting a long time for payment or profits to be realised from developments in which they have invested, which often have a significant impact on cash flow and the payments of creditors and suppliers.

We know that it’s not new news when we say the construction industry are struggling with the effects of Covid-19.  But the Office for National Statistics (ONS) have completed a recent survey of 3,568 construction firms which show the difficulties the industry are having to deal with.  It shows a lack of new jobs, price increases for materials, labour shortages, partly due to a drop in the number of migrant workers, and lower productivity due to social distancing factors.
