Future challenges

Upskilling your workforce

Digital upskilling is required of all roles within construction, from commercial to engineering, clients to suppliers, and across all trades and grades irrespective of experience.

The construction industry has long suffered from challenges posed by skills shortages and skills gaps and the cyclical boom and bust nature of construction means workloads and staffing requirements are heavily dictated by the general condition of the economy.
