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

January 2019 - UK construction rescued by housing and infrastructure

Experian, where Building Value is an advisor, has re-visited its forecasts for UK construction output which were promulgated in November last year. As it turned out, 2018 was just positive at +0.8% with 2019 expected to be little different at +0.4%. However, within the latter numbers both private housing (3.3% per annum growth 2019, 20 and 21) and infrastructure (+7 to 8% per annum) will grow over the piece. Commercial work is the biggest loser before a flat year in 2021.
