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

What's New

July 2021 - UK Housebuilding in Q2 2021 and beyond: Ex Machina

In the 12 months to end-June, the UK Housebuilders generated a TSR or Total Shareholder Return of 43% (including the smaller Sector companies doing better than the big boys). No, this won't be repeated but the annual TSR should still be pretty tidy. We also look to some divine (or secular) assistance i.e. 'deus ex machina' which literally means 'a God from the Machine'. Note too, at 30 June 2021, the Sector was trading on a PER of 10.5x and a yield of 4.5% a year out. Cheap, cheap, cheap. We also continue our association with those nice and very clever people at Space & Time Media, the digital marketing agency (see www.spaceandtime.co.uk).

July 2021 - UK construction to bounce by 11.8% in 2021

Experian, where Building Value is an advisor, updated its forecasts for UK Construction Output in mid-BST. And, after a 14% plunge in 2020, the prognosis is for Output to rise 11.8% in 2021 in real terms (led by Private Housebuilding) and then 5.6% in 2022 (led by Infrastructure) - to be followed by 3.2% in 2023 (strength across the Board). Remember, too, 3.2% is very nice to be getting on with.

June 2021 - European construction output is forecast to recover by 3.8% in 2021

The latest Euroconstruct Conference, the 91th, was held, virtually, in Warsaw in June. It promulgated construction output forecasts for 20 nations and - for these combined - the real growth rate in 2021 is set at 3.8% (after minus 5.1% last year). This will be followed by 3.0% and 2.1% in 2022 and 2023 respectively. In 2021, the UK (+11.4%) beats off all pretenders - and holds up nicely, too, next year (+5.3%) and in 2023 (+3.2%). Next best, is The Netherlands whilst in support are France, Belgium, Spain plus Norway. Elsewhere, Europe's largest market, Germany is pretty much flat over the piece.
