Construction challenges*

  • The construction sector will be vital to Lancashire if it is to achieve its economic ambitions over the coming years
  • The sector currently employs over 35,000 people in Lancashire, and forecasts suggest growth of 8,000 employees over the next ten years
  • Increasing demand for construction is likely to lead to more severe skills shortages in skilled trades
  • Post recession, skilled workers who have secured employment in other sectors are reluctant to move back into construction
