BREXIT

London has enjoyed the biggest construction boom perhaps in its entire history in the last decade. If we REMAIN in the EU that will continue. But London is very heavily dependent on foreign investment, and investor confidence. At the very least, if we vote LEAVE, that confidence will be hit perhaps for years to come. I am not a strong supporter of the EU, but we do have all the exceptions we need to avoid heading towards a Super State. So why take all the risks of leaving?

And yes it is legitimate to put occasional political arguments in this thread when so much construction depends on this question.

Also people need to know we aren't voting for the status que and the EU will grow and become even more dictatorial. What about risks of staying in, the 'risk' of destroying are fishing industry isn't there because the EU did that already. The fact we couldn't get change while threatening to leave shows the EU will not improve.

Wrong thread. Take it elsewhere, please.

The initial question was pretty simple, asking if there had been any changes or delays in construction starts in London due to the upcoming referendum and the possibility of a 'Brexit'. The answer was pretty simple, an affirmative 'yes'.

That's simple fact. You then interjected and claimed that "there will be people who will say delays and changes are due to the Brexit but they don't know that and it will be used as an excuse". That statement in this context is wholly false, especially when aimed at persons that actually live in London and work in sectors pertaining to construction, investment or real estate, as several London forumers do.

No comment on the rest of your post.

Sorry SE9 but I don't see any changes to any under construction buildings due to the vote so not sure what that statement is based on.

Although some of the bigger developers have exorcised caution on the result it will, if at all effect medium term decisions. I still see plenty of schemes being worked up which won't be delivered for a few years.

Anyway EU debate isn't probably best placed in this thread as all it will achieve are a number of speculative posts from depending on what side of the in/out. Theres more appropriate places to discuss it on this site.

There are some figures to confirm this:

http://www.constructionenquirer.com/...-2-5-in-april/

There is a drop but it's not as dramatic as one would think. Also, there is some anecdotal information that all big deals being signed have Brexit clause in them.

I'm not talking of schemes currently under construction, I'm talking of delayed starts (as well as provisionally withheld investment).

Latest data shows that project starts have halved year-on-year, sorry I can't provide a link at the moment as I'm replying on mobile.

Below is just one example of a delay with respect to a potential brexit, not an isolated case:

Just an anecdote to be taken on its merits. I'm not going to extrapolate too much from it.

EDIT:

http://www.glenigan.com/projects-lea...%20uncertainty

Commenting on this month’s figures, Allan Wilén, Glenigan’s Economics Director, said: “The drop in project starts during May is disappointing, even though it had been anticipated. There was a sharp decline in private sector starts during May which dragged down the three month total and suggests that developers are now delaying their commitment to new projects until after the EU referendum. This, combined with a fall in civil engineering project and a continued weakening in public sector starts, contributed to the overall decline in the index.

Brookfield Multiplex set for £240m Royal Docks job



Chinese property developer ABP is understood to be in advanced talks with Brookfield Multiplex about building the first phase of the £1.7bn Royal Albert Dock mixed-use development in London.

The developer aims to deliver the £240m first phase of the project with a UK contracting partner working alongside Citic Construction, the contracting unit of China’s state-owned Citic Group Corporation.

According to construction information specialist Glenigan Balfour Beatty and Mace have looked at the scheme but Brookfield Multiplex is now tipped to secure the initial phase of work.

The 4.7m sq ft docklands scheme next to London’s City Airport comprises mainly offices but with residential, retail and public realm.

It is being promoted as London’s third business and financial district, after the City of London and Canary Wharf.

The first phase of the project will be completed in 2018 at the same time that London’s high-speed rail link, Crossrail, opens nearby.

This involves a £40m contract covering infrastructure and enabling works, and a £200m contract to build around 700,000 sq ft of office and retail space.

Trio wanted for £500m London roads framework



Transport for London has launched the search for three contractors to deliver major highways improvement projects over the next four years.

Selected firms will deliver a £400-£500m pipeline of major highways redevelopment schemes and TfL’s Structure and Tunnels Investment Portfolio (STIP) 2 projects.

Contractors with places on the first STIP framework included Balfour Beatty, Bam Nuttall, Costain, Hochtief and Skanska.

Under the new framework successful bidders will be expected to deliver civil engineering design, pre-construction and works for the enhancement or refurbishment of highways and associated structures and tunnels. The tunnel works include renewal of mechanical and electrical systems.

Bidders will have to provide full details of their proposed contracting structures, including key subcontractors.

With a strong engineering design element TfL expects bids from consortia or joint ventures places on the Surface Transport Major Projects Framework.

Because the projects could have long lead in times TfL is aiming four a four-year arrangement with the option to extend for two years.

Just got back from a week's holiday and MAN has it been nice reading all of these updates on these pages. Great work guys.

I'm going to definitely go and shoot The Baltimore Tower soon, it looks just like the render!

I'm also super excited to see cores rising in The City again! Great times ahead for us skyscraper geeks.
