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

June 2022 - European construction output is forecast to grow by 2.3% in both 2022 and 2023

The latest Euroconstruct Conference, the 93th, was held in Warsaw in June. It promulgated construction output forecasts for 19 nations and - for these combined - the average real growth rate in 2022 is forecast at 2.6% (after a post-COVID recovery of circa 5.6% last year) and again (+2.6%) in 2023. This will be followed by +1.4% in 2024. Over the forecast period, three (UK, Spain and Italy) of the Big 5 do well. This is especially true of Spain with average 4.6% growth per annum through 2024. France does okay (but is below the average), whilst big boy Germany is moribund. Of the smaller nations, Ireland (+4.8% per annum 2022-24) is best in class with support from The Netherlands (2.9%). Worst are both Finland and Sweden which turn negative in both 2023 and 2024.
