Scotland Build 2015

Our construction sector team attended Scotland Build 2015 at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC), which was held on 25th and 26th November.
Scotland Build 2015 markets itself as being the ideal opportunity for organisations to get involved in Scotland’s booming construction industry and to access major developers, contractors and suppliers from across Scotland and around the world.
The exhibition included over 125 exhibitors and 50 speakers from various sectors within construction, covering commercial, retail, heavy civil, healthcare, environmental, industrial, and institutional. The speakers gave us insight in to where the construction sector was heading and the current challenges it faces.
Scottish construction industry is growing at its strongest rate in over 5 years. Construction contracts in Scotland in the past 12 months have outperformed most other parts of the UK, as the economy returns to pre-2008 levels. The Scottish Government is making significant infrastructure investments which are helping to drive this growth. Approximately £40 billion worth of contracts are set to be awarded in Scotland over the coming few years.
