Here are a few reasons why you should not be missing this tremendous opportunity to showcase your latest products and innovations to the A&D community based in Bristol and surrounding areas:
Construction output in the South West is forecast to grow at an annual average rate of 4.4% between 2016 and 2020, compared to 2.5% at the UK level. […] Total employment in the construction sector in the South West is expected to grow at an annual average rate of 2.1%, well above the UK average of 1.1%.
The infrastructure sector will benefit primarily from the construction of the Hinckley Point C nuclear power station […]. The proposed construction of Avon power station, a gas fired power facility in Bristol could add a further £1.4bn to construction output in the forecast period […].
The commercial and private housing sectors are also expected to grow at decent annual average rates of 3.9% and 3.4% respectively in the 2016 to 2020 period. In the former growth will be supported by expansion in most of the areas that drive demand for commercial premises. The latter sector will benefit from a number of large home-building developments across the region including a £2.3bn scheme in Bath.
