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 2020 - UK construction bolstered by infrastructure, housing and industrial through 2022

Experian, where Building Value is an advisor, has updated its forecasts for UK construction output by way of winter warmer. Last year, 2019, looks like it will have been positive (+1.2% in real terms). 2020 will, however, be flat (minus 0.1%), overall, before forecast growth of 2.1% and 2.9% in 2021 and 2022 respectively. Over the forecast period, too, Infrastructure, Housebuilding and Industrial Building (largely warehouses) will lead from the front with Commerical Building being a conspicuous loser, albeit a putative recovery gestates in 2022. In sum, there is £8 billion of new work to be had over three years.
