    This is the problem. “There are currently 1.2m people employed directly in the construction industry, of which 518,000 are five years away from retirement age” you can’t just whistle up additional people after reducing their employment for over a decade.

  • They will have to entice those at retrirement age to stay on, and try to teach the few kids that want to get their hands dirty to learn a trade. It is the same demographic with plumbers carpenters and electricians. In the future it will not be land that is in short supply but the ability to build homes.

    Unfortunately for construction companies this may mean paying a lot more. – Market forces, pent up demand, shortage and all that.

    Also due to the fairly unique construction techniques in the UK, as compared to Europe they will not be able to import skilled labour easily from abroad.
