Construction Projects Across the UK

At Glossop Skip Hire, we deal with a lot of builders and construction companies, and like to keep in the know about developments etc withi n the industry. On that note we can report that industry forecasts indicate a rise of 7.4% for new build infrastructure in the UK in the period 2017 to 2019. This optimistic prediction is the result of several key factors, a major one being the proposed extensive amount of waterway projects planned throughout the UK.

This makes a lot of sense as we are a country surrounded by and often adjacent to water, so using this to our advantage seems logical. We will see steady growth in this area, with schemes like the Aberdeen Harbour Expansion, a £350 million project which will be completed by 2020. One reason for this expansion is to include a facility for oil industry decommissioning work. Also in the pipeline, are a £135 million redevelopment of Dover port, along with the placement of a new link-span bridge at the Port of Heysham in Lancashire costing £10 million.

There are substantial nationwide projects being embarked upon that concern water treatment upgrades. This will mean that on completion in 2020, £44 billion will have been spent on improvements by water companies in places like London, Birmingham and Wessex.

UK residents can also expect a rise in much needed highways maintenance projects using a budget of £1.3 billion, and a boost of infrastructure repair and maintenance is also in the mix. A delay in the building of nuclear power stations will mean structural maintenance on a large scale for existing power plants.

All of this activity means good news for the construction industry and those involved, including companies offering wide ranging, high quality building services. Looks like we are in for a busy few years!
