Construction output is forecast to rise by 2.5% in 2022 and 1.6% in 2023 as strong growth in warehouses and major infrastructure projects offsets a slowdown in private housing and repair, maintenance and improvement (rm&i).

The forecast for this year and primarily next year has been revised down due to the lagged impact of rising inflation and, consequently, slower economic growth prospects on construction industry demand whilst labour and materials availability and cost inflation issues are likely to mean that the industry potentially sees the value of output previously expected but not the volume.

Case studies

The Three Peaks of Yorkshire – Ingleborough, Whernside and Pen-y-ghent, – are riddled with underground passages and caves, of which one of the most famous is White Scar Caves.

In the summer of 2015 the idyllic shoreline of Lymington-Keyhaven Nature Reserve was home to a pair of lightweight timber cabins, known collectively as The Observatory.
