15th Feb: Navigating 2024 and beyond

Join us as we explore how to position our businesses in preparedness for an economic upturn and/or change in Government.



We appear to have spent the last four years lurching from one crisis to another.  We thought the focus of the Government for this Parliamentary term would be the UK’s first steps following our exit from the European Union.  Instead we have had to deal with a global pandemic, conflicts in Europe and the Middle East, and the political turmoil of three Prime Ministers and five Chancellor of the Exchequers, all of which has impacted on the current state of the economy.

According to Begbies Traynor as highlighted in Building, “the number of companies in critical financial distress has jumped by more than a quarter at the end of 2023, with “serious concerns” over construction and real estate firms”.

Julie Palmer, partner at Begbies Traynor stated “After a difficult year for British businesses that was characterised by high interest rates, rampant inflation, weak consumer confidence and rising and unpredictable input costs, we are now seeing this perfect storm impact every corner of the economy”.

So what lies ahead for those of us working in the design and construction sector and how do we position our businesses in preparedness for an economic upturn and/or change in Government. Come and join us as our expert panel discuss:

  • What is happening to the economy and how will this impact the construction sector this year?

  • Will we just paper over the cracks on our crumbling public sector estate until after the election?

  • What is current client expectation with regard to cost, inflation, pipeline and delivery?

  • How do we position our businesses in preparedness for an economic upturn and/or change in Government?
