BSRIA says that following the decision for the UK to leave the EU it is ‘business as usual’ for its members and that the construction industry should remain confident and optimistic about the opportunities for existing and new industry projects.
The organisation says that it is committed to giving ‘extra service to members’ throughout this uncertain time.
Chief executive Julia Evans (pictured) said: “Now that the dust has settled a week on from the Brexit decision – for BSRIA it is definitely business as usual – we are where we are. There are opportunities out there for our members to garner new work and deals – we all just need to find them.”
She added: “Against a backdrop of political and ‘economic spaghetti’ BSRIA can lead and support its members into a bright new future.
“As an industry – we must now start to shape future policy. Indeed it is a chance to revise industry regulations and to renegotiate the framework for the future and find new trade rules.”
Ms Evans continued: “I was especially encouraged to learn that government ministers have begun efforts to reassure industry leaders that housing and infrastructure spending will not drop and in fact both will become ‘more important, not less’ after Brexit.”
“Industry cannot afford any period of parliamentary inaction and uncertainty on non-EU related issues, whether two years or more in length, and BSRIA seeks urgent reassurance from government that this will not be the case.”
