Yesterday, Richard Waterhouse from NBS hosted a panel discussion with industry experts on the UK construction materials shortage.

Due to a global rise in demand and a tight supply of construction materials, the shortage of construction materials in the UK continues to impact the industry, which includes vital products such as bricks, steel, cement, timber, and paint. This has led to delayed projects and increased costs, compounded by other factors such as the blockage of the Suez Canal and the ongoing effects of Brexit.

The panel covered what’s causing the shortages, its impact on the construction industry, and how to manage the barriers it’s creating, especially for manufacturers and specifiers.

The panel consisted of

  • Iain Mcilwee, CEO at Finishes and Interiors Sector (FIS)
  • Charmaine Dean, Marketing Manager at Catnic
  • George Mokhtar, Director – Technology Business Lead at Turner & Townsend
  • Lee Jones, Head of Manufacturer Solutions at NBS
