Breakfast Seminar - Inflation, exceptional times!

According to the Financial Times, the UK inflation rate hit a 40 year high of 10.1% in July 2022, the first double-digit rate since February 1982.

Rising prices consistently dominate UK press reports and present a very challenging outlook for the coming months and years. Our breakfast seminar will take a closer look at how these challenges are impacting the UK Construction Industry and will outline some of the key issues we are facing, as well as exploring solutions we can deploy to protect our projects and businesses from this unprecedented uncertainty.
