Michael Harris of Eversheds comments on construction industry following UK floods
Michael Conroy Harris, construction expert at Eversheds, has said that there is no spare capacity in the UK construction industry following the floods.
Commenting on the latest set of UK construction output figures, Harris said: ‘The latest figures are of course encouraging but we need to stop and consider how the current floods will have an impact on what happens next.
‘We will have competing demands for urgently needed repairs alongside maintaining the current expansion of house building. The industry simply doesn’t have spare capacity for both so something may have to give.’
