Construction Crunch
John Polkinghorne

I’ve been saying for a while now that the construction sector is under pressure – there are too many people wanting things built, and not enough builders to do the work.

But we’re certainly at a point where builders are very busy, and where we can’t speed up the rate of building much faster without it causing major cost increases.
