What does Brexit mean for the UK's construction industry?
On 23 June 2016, the British people voted to leave the European Union, signalling a momentous change to Britain’s political and economic landscape.
No European Union Member State has ever left the EU so the process of withdrawal is untested. Effecting a successful ‘Brexit’ will involve disentangling the UK from complex politico-legal, financial and other relationships and obligations. But what does this mean for the UK construction industry and what actions can you take now to protect your business?
Our new Construction: Brexit Guide attempts to answer these questions and examine the legislative impact of a Brexit on a variety of areas affecting the construction industry including health and safety, procurement, sustainability and environment, employment and bribery and corruption.
