According to Barbour ABI’s Economic & Construction Market Review, total contract awards for 2020 reached £57billion, despite a 5% fall due to the COVID pandemic.

The UK construction industry is huge and moves at a fast pace and companies need to keep up if they are to meet quality benchmarks and health and safety standards, something that became only too apparent when COVID struck last year and a whole host of changes needed to be introduced in order to keep projects going.

Throughout the lockdown period, the majority of households have had to get used to spending a lot of time at home, causing many to reflect on the things they’d be looking for in their next property.

According to a Rightmove survey earlier in June 2020(1), 39% of buyers have reassessed their priorities as a result of the pandemic, with 63% wanting a larger garden or access to garden space and 43% looking for a bigger home in general. Furthermore, similar research conducted by Zoopla found that 22% of house hunters would prioritise a home office space (rising to 35% for those aged between 35-49) and 21% see lower household running costs as a ‘must-have’(2).
