Is the Infrastructure and Projects Authority, the UK Driver of Post COVID-19 Economic Stimulus?

We have got used to watching the graphs of how events have unfolded since March in the UK. A devastating time for all, notably so for the terrible loss of life and the change to the economic structure of the UK. The latter resulting in uncertainty for jobs and business. Business in the UK waited and drew breath whilst it did all it could to diversify, to hibernate until the all clear was given to begin to open its doors. To start the period of rejuvenation that matches current times and helps build a stronger Britain. At the heart of…

No-Deal Brexit and Contingency Plans

29th March 2019, the date on which the UK could leave the EU with a no-deal Brexit. From day one, political and economic commentators have warned that a no-deal Brexit, also known as a hard Brexit, is the worst possible outcome for the UK. However, the closer we come to that date, and with no deal being secured, now is the time to prepare or action contingency plans. Even though the construction industry, and the wider economy, has experienced growth, the economic uncertainty surrounding a post-Brexit UK could impact day-to-day business operations if measures are not put in place.

Contracts and Sub Contracts in the wake of the Carillion Collapse

It is known in business that you can not own or do everything. Contracts in construction regardless of the level of budget are always going to be subject to some sub-contracting activity. This is normally to facilitate resource deficiency and to ensure that deadlines are adhered to. It could be just an act of Taylorism to optimise and simplify tasks on a project to achieve a wider goal. Perhaps subbing in crews of specialists to get a project over a phase. Scientific Management of Projects Frederick Winslow Taylor studied the motivation of people and its connection with achieving goals, his…

Chapter 8 - More Than Just Barriers

One of the myths of the construction industry is that Chapter 8 is the name of the plastic barriers placed around temporary road works to protect the public. Chapter 8 is not the name of the barriers. Chapter 8 is the name of the guidelines that should be followed when completing temporary road works. The DfT (Department for Transport) has released a comprehensive guide known as the Traffic Signs Manual, in which Chapter 8 is split into two parts: Part 1: Road Works and Temporary Situations – Design: Guidance for the design of temporary traffic management arrangements which should be…

Why property prices have plunged since Brexit vote

Since the announcement that Britain has voted to leave the EU, the threat of recession is rippling through every industry in one way or another, having a severe impact on hundreds of thousands (if not, millions) of businesses. House builders especially are experiencing disastrous loss, with the prices of properties crashing to as much as 40 per cent of their pre-Brexit value. What was previously regarded as strong stock-value is now at an all-time low due to the possible threat of another UK recession. According to Reuters, approximately £8 billion has been slashed from the UK’s four biggest house-builders, Barratt…
