Re-flow | State of the Infrastructure Industry Report, 2023
Re-flow, the award-winning field management software provider, has released its latest report on the state of the infrastructure industry in the UK.
The report sheds light on the ongoing challenges facing the industry, which encompasses a wide range of sectors including highways, traffic management, rail, and civil engineering.
The report highlights how global events, such as the COVID-19 pandemic and the war in Ukraine, continue to impact the infrastructure industry in the UK. These events, along with other factors discussed in the report, have resulted in demand, supply chain and energy issues driving up material costs and increasing wages across the sector, while the pool of skilled tradesmen continues to shrink.
In addition, the report also explores the current state of health, safety and environmental sustainability within the sector. As government bodies increase their focus on safety and net-zero goals, businesses are increasingly likely to come under greater scrutiny in the coming years.
Drawing on data from trusted industry and government bodies, including the Federation of Master Builders (FMB), the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), the Office for National Statistics (ONS) and Balfour Beatty, the report examines the impact of recent global events on the sector, the looming threat of a potential recession, as well as the likelihood for these issues to persist in coming years according to industry professionals. With valuable insights into the key issues facing the infrastructure industry in the UK, this report is a must-read for anyone aiming to future-proof their business and ensure sustainable growth in the challenging current climate.
