About this event

The last few years have massive price rises across materials and labour in the infrastructure sector driving up project costs and putting some projects at risk. Although some prices of key materials have stabilized the demand for labour remains high, with certain skills in particular demand. Price volatility, an ambitious pipeline, increased investment in the United States, and busy residential and commercial construction sector are all contributing to unpredictable market.
