Despite factors like unpredictable weather, and a shell shocked building industry, there seems to be definite light at the end of the tunnel for UK construction. A recent report in the form of the Economic and Construction Market Review compiled by Barbour ABI puts things into perspective. As the construction industry recovers, and activity gathers pace, the UK has experienced a sharp increase in house building. In January 2017 building contracts nationwide amounted to £2.7bn, which represents an 83% increase compared to January 2016. Market conditions were extremely favourable where private house building is concerned, allowing a rise from 66% in 2016 to 91% in January 2017.
It’s encouraging to note the degree of social and environmental awareness evident, as building companies strive to improve their green credentials. Architectural design and construction play a huge role in ensuring a responsible strategy to lower carbon emissions. This is in line with government legislation regarding eco friendly solutions, and the requirement for green technology in new build homes. These considerations are now taken for granted by consumers, who expect construction specialists to incorporate energy efficient systems, as well as smart electrical and water saving features into their houses.
Talking about extreme and unpredictable weather, building companies not only have to make sure that clients in places like Tilbury are fully catered for, but that construction workers are able to work unhindered. A building site in winter for instance can be a little formidable not to mention hazardous! Darker nights, wet and slippy surfaces, gales and frost all make for difficult conditions and possibly even extended deadlines.

Rhinos Plant Hire offer a range of Winter Plant Hire tools and equipment, ideal for any project in Tilbury or Thurrock, hindered by these seasonal weather conditions.
