Post-Brexit trade deal provides some hope for builders, says FMB

January 2021

After years of uncertainty, the recent announcement of a UK-EU trade deal brings reassurance to the construction industry, but Britain’s small builders are already suffering the impacts of the delay, according to the Federation of Master Builders (FMB).

Brian Berry, Chief Executive of the FMB, said: “After the toughest of years, Britain’s builders will welcome the certainty that this deal appears to offer. Unfortunately, however, the deal will have come too late for many already feeling the effects of prolonged indecision.”

Berry concluded: “Nine in ten builders already face risings costs due to supply chain disruptions and higher product demand. We will wait to digest the detail, but this trade deal must deliver for builders by removing the barriers in their path to building back better and greener, be those access to products or skilled labour.”
