Strip Out Contractors London

Strip out contractors are keeping their eyes on these emerging developments for future opportunity and here we look at the 5 most exciting and eagerly anticipated:

The Scalpel – this distinctively named skyline altering building stands at an impressive 190m and opened in 2018. At 38 stories high, is London’s 7th tallest skyscraper and cost around £500M to build. Originally built as WR Berkeley’s EU headquarters, amazingly, it is reported that the building was at least half let long before its doors even opened. Strip out contractors see this largely commercial space as an excellent opportunity for future works.
Spire, London – this will be Western Europe’s tallest residential tower, standing just over 235 metres tall (771 ft), with 67 floors and unrivalled views across London and the southeast. Demolition and strip out contractors started work on this project back in September 2016, with a current aim of completion for 2020. Interestingly, it has already earned the nick name of the “Flower Tower”, due to its petal like shape. Construction cost currently stands at £800M.

Battersea Power Station –long before plans to turn this structure in to the hub of London’s next most sought after neighbourhoods, this building was already a staple of London’s iconic skyline. After extension of the Northern Line is complete, this £8B, 7 phase development will be in a perfect location for central London commuters. This previously decommissioned is being rightly brought back to life, creating thousands of jobs and opportunities for strip out contactors.

Crossrail – boasting the titles of “biggest civil construction project in Europe”, with over 15000 staff employed and an estimated completion cost of around £15B, this project offers a dramatic injection in to the London construction economy. In additional to the obvious market increases that are experienced as a result of such a landmark project, this will also bring 10 new stations to London and link previously unlinked locations, ensuring that strip out contractors and the rest of the industry are better connected.

Thames baths lido – not as relevant to strip out contractors but worth noting to those interested in London developments nonetheless. Not many would welcome the idea of taking a dip in the Thames, yet this project aims to transform part of its waters, close to temple station, in to three freshwater pools. At an estimated cost of £10M, it is at early stages of funding and will be an excellent, pioneering addition to the London cityscape and leisure offering.

As you can see, as you would expect from one of the world’s most economically important cities, there is a lot going on in within London’s construction industry. This is exciting for residents, visitors and businesses alike, offering opportunity for work and leisure – not least strip out contractors.

Commercial Demolition Contractors London, UK

Would commercial demolition contractors London, UK and the rest of the sector cope with a “no deal” Brexit?

For commercial demolition contractors and other construction companies, Brexit means uncertainty. It seems that the uncertainty of Brexit alone can have a negative effect on the industry as people are understandably reluctant to invest and award work until the separation conditions are clear – this is no different for commercial demolition contractors London, UK.

Without a clear understanding of the likely conditions, how can we judge whether or not London makes for a sound investment?

Upon receiving the news that the collective electorate had voted to leave the EU, many in the construction industry, including commercial demolition contractors London, UK and wondering what the implications would be.

Whilst many had displayed mixed views throughout the campaign on the prospects of Brexit, a survey undertaken by an independent prior to the referendum reported that 15% of construction execs favoured a UK exit.

Most concern surrounds the uncertainty of a possible skills shortage, material import and export and potential new regulations. All of which, as it stands, represent clear uncertainty and ultimately effects both the construction industry as a whole and commercial demolition contractors in London, UK.

This begs the question of what is actually worse, Brexit itself or the delay in its execution?

Ultimately, we need a decision. We need to know the conditions before we can make ongoing plans for the industry and economy as a whole.

Prime Minister, Theresa May, said that the free movement of workers between the UK and EU would end “once and for all”.

This is inevitably a concern as the construction industry relies on a consistent supply of both skilled and, particularly for commercial demolition contractors, unskilled labour.

The office of National Statistics figures shows that one third of workers on construction sites were from over sees, with 28% coming from the EU.

This reduction in labour through the limited immigration could mean that the UK could start to experience higher costs, where labour demands outweigh supply. For commercial demolition contractors in London, UK and other companies within the industry, the worry is that we would then see a reduction in work as a result of reduced investment.

In addition to higher labour charges, the other worry is the effect that import and export could have on projects costs. A 2010 study by the department of business skills and innovation estimated that 64% of building materials were imported from the EU and the same support stated that around 63% of UK building materials were exported to the EU.

Post Brexit, this could mean importers and exporters face duties or limits on quants, which could potentially lead to shortages and an increase in costs. Again, could mean less work for commercial demolition contractors.

I guess, for now, we are left to speculate and live with the uncertainty but I am sure that many would say – “better the devil you know”.
