Regional Crane Surveys 2018
See how city skylines are changing across the UK
Construction is routinely looked to as a marker for the economic health of a city or region. Our Real Estate Regional Crane Surveys highlight this link between development and prosperity, examining the external influences and key market drivers of city centre construction.
The latest reports monitor construction activity across Manchester, Birmingham, Leeds and Belfast. Spurred on by an upturn in sentiment, how has this translated across the sectors and geographies?
The Belfast Crane Survey
Belfast has certainly seen a sustained momentum and level of ambition with construction across the city, despite macro forces in play such as Brexit and lack of an executive at Stormont.
The Birmingham Crane Survey
Birmingham is undoubtedly in a new era of re-development and re-purposing with record levels of construction activity across the city centre.
The Leeds Crane Survey
Leeds has a healthy city centre economy with improved job opportunities as a result of the significant increase in office space under construction, the second highest volume in a decade.
The Manchester Crane Survey
Backed by significant investor confidence, a strong business community, and an influx of new talent, the demand for property, particularly in the residential market, has never been more evident in Manchester.
