Managing Director's Column - Looking Forward To The Next 12 Months

SCROLL DOWN

As we move into the final part of this year it’s hard to believe that it’s over 18 months since we went into the first lockdown.  It’s been a very strange time for everyone and like many companies we have had to overcome numerous obstacles that have made running a business particularly challenging. These have included new operating regulations as a result of the pandemic, a real and urgent shortage of labour driven by Brexit and Covid-19 travel restrictions, a surge in inflation on all building materials and frustrating supply chain challenges. 

 

Having said all of that, we have been extremely busy with domestic projects throughout the last 18 months.  And we have seen a significant surge in demand over the summer, particularly in the property investment market in central London.  The lack of good quality builders means that our teams are highly sought after and we’re going into the Autumn with the strongest order book we’ve ever had. 

 

I would personally like to thank our wonderful staff and clients for their enduring loyalty and support over this demanding period.  I am really excited by the size and diversity of the projects we’ve got coming up and with enquiries at an all-time high we are currently investing in 5 new vans and additional site managers to manage that growth.  Looking towards next year, I believe the market will only get stronger and am excited about our plans for 2022 when we will be expanding our presence throughout London.
