UK construction industry can’t overheat as demand for homes increases, says Eversheds
Eversheds construction expert Michael Conroy-Harris has commented regarding the extra pressure put on UK construction by the demand for homes.
Conroy-Harris said: ‘The highlighted imbalance between supply and demand for homes indicates an imminent sea change in the market. After the lengthy barren period in the construction industry that followed financial crisis, the last thing we want is to damage the confidence that has taken so long to return.
‘However, now is a good time for a reality check in the construction industry — we can’t afford to hope that it doesn’t overheat.’
