Welcome to Building Value

Building Value provides advice and leadership in strategy, planning, corporate finance and communications to the key industries of construction, building materials, real estate and support services; and does so with independence, integrity and insight.

Its Chairman and founder, Tony Williams, has specialised in these industries and disciplines internationally for more than 30 years in a portfolio career as investment banker and industrialist with leading companies such as UBS, Morgan Stanley, ING Barings and ABN AMRO. He was also a Director of Tarmac plc and AMEC plc - and has wide experience as a Non Executive Director in the UK and China. 

This provides Building Value with a unique perspective and an ideal base from which to proffer help and direction; and it does so from a Head Office in west London and a Scandinavian subsidiary in Sweden.

Building Value: it does just that

November 2022 - European construction output is forecast to be flat in both 2023 and 2024

The latest Euroconstruct Conference, the 94th, was held in London in November. It promulgated construction output forecasts for 19 nations and - for these combined - the average real growth rate in 2022 is forecast to have been 3.0% (after a post-COVID recovery of circa 5.8% in 2021). This will be followed by flat years in 2023 (+0.3%) and 2024 (0.0%). And, over the forecast period, two (Spain and France) of the Big Five do okay whilst the largest 'Fiver', Germany, is moribund. Of the smaller nations, Ireland and Slovakia are the picks of the bunch. Worst are Sweden, Finland and Hungary.
