But now finally most of the companies factoried it in as before 90% of "experts" told them not to bother, hence initial panic.

No company has factored-in 'Brexit', as no-one has an idea of what it'll look like or affect their respective operations.

You are more likely safe for another 5 years when it comes to the Hermitage towers. In a 10 years horizon? It starts to be very crowded in La Defense. And the demand is expected to significantly raise, especially with the latests events. Less place at ground level... lets see

Bad planning, in other words.

I suggest you watch Canary Wharf grow day by day, more exiting now and gathering pace.

I think you misunderstand SE9's point.

Companies can't plan for Brexit because they don't yet know what it entails. It is the Leave camp's responsibility to determine what that should be. But they didn't think to put forward a detailed plan of post referendum action.

As a consequence, UK based companies are left hanging in uncertainty.

Anyway, this isn't the thread for this discussion. Best to take it back to the UK forums Skybar.

Ok, just to say that 10% of companies who did in fact planned for Brexit and possible outcomes it can have are now busy doing M&A and securing cheaper funds.

No, by Cameron, so arrogant was he that no planning was put in place for a possible leave vote.

How did you expect the leave camp to have a plan they could put into effect when they're not the government?

Did you seriously expect the likes of Gove & Johnson to have the authority to instruct the the Bank Of England & the rest what to do?

Seriously, stop with the salty tear crying about losing and looking for bad news confirmation bias, just so you can roll out the snide 'I told you so' narrative.

I'm not chancellor but even I can formulate the bare bones of a plan. Any plan is better than no plan, whether in government or not.

Gatwick names 17 contractors on £1.2bn frameworks

Gatwick Airport has confirmed the winners on its low and medium complexity frameworks to help deliver its Capital Investment Programme over the next five years.

The new programme has an additional £200 million attached to it bringing the total projected spend to £1.2 billion up to 2021.

Investment will focus on developing the existing airport infrastructure and increase future passenger capacity while Gatwick waits for the government to make a decision on its second runway proposal.

Seventeen winners have been named after 127 companies submitted pre-qualification information.

The new frameworks include a total of six supply chains of building, mechanical and electrical, and civil engineering across low and medium complexity works.

The two frameworks are graded by complexity – one for low complexity projects typically involving contracts of up to £1.5m and the other for medium complexity projects for contracts between £1m to £10m.

Precisely Jim.

And indeed, can people ask questions and continue discussion pertaining to a future Brexit in the dedicated UK forum thread. More contributors and more in depth: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...21497&page=568
