London, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/09/2019 -- A historical event such as Brexit brings a number of uncertainties alongside it. These are affecting a wide array of Britain's sectors – and the construction sector is no different. As the date of this world-changing event draws nearer, the following are a couple of things firms such as MPGQS have been doing to brace for the impact.
As the market continues to be haphazard, many firms are advised to remain cautious and careful in their actions. More and more details about the exit strategy are coming to light – and this will undoubtedly assist in decision making. There was an influx in manufacturing output seen earlier this year. This was as a result of companies beginning to prepare for tighter restrictions on the cross-border movement of workers and goods. This has largely settled down now. As new tariffs and taxes are placed upon imported goods, their prices are expected to rise. Additionally, restrictive control over movement of these materials may slow down the overall process significantly.
Tighter control over the labor movement could result in a shortage in the workforce. 25% of London's construction workers are migrants from the EU. As entry and exit become harder for them, they may consider other options. The remaining labor will undoubtedly rise in price, due to the resultant shortage. Projects may see delays and completion dates may be pushed back as a result. Investors are showing caution in terms of investments. This may result in stagnation of development of projects such as HS2, Crossrail 2 and others. However, government funds which would otherwise be spent on EU membership can be used for further developmental projects.
Uncertain times can have unpredictable results. But, it is with confidence and resilience that MPGQS operates. And that is what they hope to ensure, as they move into this new future for Britain.
