Oxbury Chartered Surveyors have recently completed a survey of 16 main contractors operating throughout East Anglia. The Contractors range from small local firms to multi-national companies, all of whom were asked to respond based on their business within the East of England.
So why did we carry out survey?
We originally carried out a survey in 2015/2016 and plan to make this an annual review of the market. The sector is perceived to be busy, yet contractors are still expected to respond quickly to the development needs of the industry and our clients. Whilst we can speculate on the market conditions and how contractors will respond to these demands, we felt it made more sense to actually ask them directly. We have seen changes in procurement, rising tender prices and tender enquiries declined, so what does this all mean?
