Construction For Growth
26 September 2012
We read recently that the UK's construction workforce has declined to its lowest level since 2001 with a total of 1,996,000 workers according to recent Office National Statistic (ONS) labour market statistics. Figures show that there have been over 45,000 jobs lost and a 5% reduction in construction output contributing to the return of recession.
However this month (September) we understand that a new industry campaign has started; Construction4Growth is calling on Government to invest in construction as the best route out of recession and back to growth.
Ai Solutions supports this campaign as without assistance and investment from the government, the construction industry will not provide the much needed boost to the economy that this country needs. The government needs to increase investment, develop skills and encourage the green agenda in driving growth through construction.
