Berry Systems | UK Construction and Manufacturing
The UK economy saw growth of 0.5% in the final quarter of 2015. The UK is dominated by the service sector yet the future for the construction industry looks promising. As of April 2015, there have been 40 regeneration projects listed of which the RIO are seeking further investment.
Thus far, 2016 has seen the construction industry lead a steady start with January’s forecast showing 23% of projects being within infrastructure and another 23% being within the residential sector. For companies like Berry Systems, these opportunities positively reflect on the future of the construction industry.
Although Berry Systems’ primary product range involves steel safety barriers for MSCP, their experience and expertise within the industry has allowed them to focus their attention on these new opportunities. 2016 has presented significant scope for market penetration off the previous trading years, the facility for wider product ranges and increase services has set a new level for the business dynamics.
February so far upholds it’s promise after showing an increase in growth in the residential (39%) and infrastructure (33%) sectors; therefore, alliterating the concept that this industry, no matter how volatile, consistently sees demand. Berry Systems’ presence within the infrastructure sector is niche; however, their adaptability signifies that opportunities can be sort-out anywhere.Their range of secondary steelwork infrastructure products are applicable to industries, including: industrial, commercial and residential. As more focus and demand is acknowledged within the residential and consequently the new-build sector, products and services will be demanded throughout to ensure the safety of pedestrians, workers and site is guaranteed from errant vehicles.
Subsequently, an extra focus on safety, transport systems and business development will help change the shape of the fighting construction market. Berry Systems have identified these opportunities, thus meaning their range of specialist street furniture and infrastructure products can be implemented further to aid the development of these new areas of interest and the market as a whole.

The Government introduced a Four-point plan in October 2015 that illustrates steps that have so far been taken to help encourage growth within all construction and manufacturing sectors. Despite this scheme putting more focus on residential development by making housing more affordable or first-time buyers; if more people are able to purchase, the demand for alternative facilities will no-doubt follow. Therefore, manufacturers like Berry Systems will service these demands as they are able to supply and install the essential products required to fulfil these needs. I.e. Trolley bays for new supermarkets, anti-ram Bollards for retailers, leisure services and small business owners and Wheel Guides for built up and busy areas).
Annual forecast reports indicate that the construction market will see a 17% growth as major infrastructure projects take form. One of these will include the HS2 development of which will hopefully encourage more business, infrastructural and residential projects to be taken on all throughout the UK. As better connects between London and the Midlands (and the North) are established, it may encourage local authorities to ensure their cities offer the best transport, parking, commercial and retail facilities to complement this advancement. If this is done, it could ultimately result in long-term growth and development nationwide.
These new projects link to the increasing demand for car and bicycle parks; however it has been identified that many local authorities and private operations generally neglect car parks both from a structural and decorative point of view. In the last two years five car parks have been reported as closed with structural fears and some have been demolished after intervention of the Health and Safety Executive. The BPA believe that good quality, well designed and properly maintained car parks can contribute significantly to the prosperity of Britain’s towns and cities.
Berry Systems are a company keen to adapt and innovate meaning these core market changes are recognised by this market leader. Product development and implementation is then ultimately achieved; therefore, allowing them to maintain their strong position within the construction/ manufacturing market as their preliminary and secondary steelwork range can meet demand.
The further development of the business has led the Hill & Smith division into a wider scope of work. They offer a unique understanding for the integration of the works packages and coordination of installations within the industrial and commercial MSCP and infrastructure sector. Over the last 30 years standards and authoritative recommendations have advanced considerably and the solutions offered by Berry Systems have matched, and in many cases, have exceeded all requirements.
