Civil Engineering - UK - January 2017

“The major projects set to drive civil engineering construction output over the next five years include Crossrail, Hinkley Point C, Thames Tideway Tunnel, major road schemes, Network Rail’s modernisation programme, and, once fully approved, HS2. However, shortages in skilled labour and construction materials capacity will pose challenges to the industry, with those areas requiring considerable investment. The labour and skills shortage could be further exacerbated by Brexit if the UK restricts EU migrants, potentially putting infrastructure projects at risk.”

– Claudia Preedy - B2B Analyst

This report addresses the following key questions:

  • What are the current government’s plans for infrastructure spending? Which sectors are set to attract the highest public and private spending?
  • What are the potential implications of Brexit for UK Infrastructure investment?
  • Is Brexit likely to exacerbate current labour skills shortages?
  • Are frequent government policy changes affecting investor confidence in the renewable energy infrastructure sector?
