Cranes fill the skyline in booming regional cities | Construction Buzz #203
While other indicators suggest that the UK construction industry is hovering on the brink of a downturn, an old-fashioned headcount of tower cranes suggests we’re booming.
According to Deloitte’s latest crane surveys, construction activity has hit record levels.
The Deloitte Real Estate Crane Survey series monitors construction activity in Belfast, Birmingham, Leeds and Manchester as well as Dublin. It suggests that in 2018 each city saw a sustained or increased level of development across a whole range of sectors including offices, apartment blocks, hotels, shops, schools and student housing.
