High levels of investment and return are present within Scotland’s current projects, including road construction and improving the railway structure.
Further investments are underway within the Scottish Government’s Help To Buy scheme which has a budget of £ 140 mill. for the financial year of 2014 to 2015, financially assisting individuals with the process of home buying. The Scottish Government states: “A strong and growing house-building industry is key to Scotland‘s future economic prosperity”. The scheme has been very successful, so that Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon announced an additional £ 50 mill. would be added to the scheme’s budget in May 2014.
Upholding the Government’s statement of an economic prosperity in Scotland, The Construction Monitor reported a record high figure of promise within the construction industry. 55.8% of respondents stated they were more confident about the next 12 months in comparison to 42.1% in the previous quarter; the highest figure since 2008.
At such at an exciting time in Scotland, the first Scotland Build 2015 will be held on 25 and 26 November 2015 at Glasgow’s Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre (SECC) in the heart of the city. The event will boast more than 10 000 quality attendees and over 175 exhibitors.
