The Building Products sector is currently growing rapidly with several major development projects such as Crossrail, HS2 and the Dubai Gateway backed up by the solid return to growth in core house building. With an expanding population and ageing infrastructure this sector is critical to our economic growth and directly employs over 150,000 workers in the UK. Improvements in planning legislation and support for first-time buyers represent a general improvement in government commitment to construction and the investment environment.
Construction, Building Products and related services are at the centre of Livingstone’s Industrials practice and our contact base and track record is market-leading.
