Be Part of the UK Success Story
Held at ExCeL, in East London's Royal Docks, the area around the Show is set to be Europe’s largest construction zone over the next decade. Major commercial, residential and retail projects recently approved include the £1.5 billion deal to transform Silvertown Quays into London’s innovation quarter; the £6 billion investment to convert Royal Albert Dock into the capital’s next business district; and the creation of the UK’s largest floating village at Royal Victoria Dock.
But that is just the backdrop for the Natural Stone Show. It is not just in London that construction is booming. It is all over the country. British construction companies had their best year in a decade for building new homes in 2017 and the outlook for 2018 is even better with six per cent growth anticipated.
Infrastructure investments, including the much-anticipated HS2 high-speed train line, have led developers to be more bullish outside the capital and seize the opportunity to significantly refurbish and redevelop existing stock.
