The national construction industry is awaking from its pandemic inspired slump with renewed vigour and form. In fact, construction output for March 2022 was 3.7%, above pre-Covid19 February 2020 levels. This also marks the culmination of the strongest quarterly growth period in the sector since 2017. Whilst our own city lays claim to having some of the oldest buildings in the land, it’s also experiencing a welcome boom in new builds, renovations, and additions. Some of this construction is on an epic scale, like HG’s £65 million 200,000 sq. foot project, featuring a cinema, restaurants, a hotel, and other leisure facilities such as a bowling alley and climbing centre. Other construction is more residential in focus, and ranges from single build homes to buildings comprising large numbers of flats. Whatever grand designs are being executed, they all necessitate an availability of construction materials and the talent to build and sell it. Here’s how the sale and supply of aggregates and the new Colchester architecture they are contributing to, is shaping up across the region.
