How quickly can the construction sector in the south bounce back from the coronavirus pandemic – and where will the strongest shoots of recovery emerge?
These will be some of the key trends tracked in the MHA Construction & Real Estate Survey, which is now open for responses.
The annual survey acts as a barometer for the industry’s challenges and market sentiment and will look at issues around COVID-19, funding, recruitment and employment, innovation and future trends.
Worthing, Gatwick and Brighton-based accountants and business advisers MHA Carpenter Box has issued the survey to approximately 300 construction and real estate businesses across the south east.
Robert Dowling, MHA Carpenter Box Partner and Head of Construction & Real Estate, commented: “We are all too aware of the challenges that the current pandemic has brought to all business sectors, but I am particularly keen to see the responses from property and construction businesses so that we can understand the sector’s main challenges and define how best to support the industry through this difficult period.”
The survey is open until 24 July and the results will form the foundation of MHA’s Construction & Real Estate Report due out in September.
