Construction & Engineering Work Continues in Face of Recession

With the constant news reports about dropping house prices, job losses and the economy slowing down, most people would expect the construction industry to lie low until the end of the recession. This is not the case though. Even during all the Credit Crunch misery, construction work continues and more and more people are choosing to train for traditional trades such as building and plumbing. There is also a significant amount of development in key regional cities to keep tradesmen in construction jobs.

Region redevelopments are still booming as places such as Leeds, Sheffield and Bradford undergo transformations  搭棚價格 from city centre shopping centres to airport expansion.

Engineering and construction jobs in Leeds are set to increase thanks to the current expansion of Leeds Bradford Airport. Leeds Bradford Airport has a budget of £70 million to spend over the next 5 years to create an international airport to rival Manchester. The first stage of redevelopment is an extension to the terminal building which will cost £28 million and is likely to increase the availability of construction jobs in the region.

Work is also already under way on what will become one of Leeds largest shopping complexes right in the centre of the city. The development is called Trinity Leeds. The development will increase Leeds status as a hub of high street and designer shopping. It is hoped the shopping complex will provide a boost for engineering and construction jobs in Leeds.

Developments are also bringing good news to Leeds United fans as plans are in place to redevelop the Elland Road stadium. Plans include a new hotel complex, a covered arcade and improving the conference and events facilities. Other projects bringing building and construction jobs to the Leeds area include three new retail units being built in Bradford and significant investment into redeveloping schools in Huddersfield.

This redevelopment may create new construction jobs in Leeds.

It is important to see through all the negative press surrounding the construction industry that there are construction and building developments going on which are creating new jobs. With all these developments in just the one area, it means good news if you are searching for a construction job in Leeds and the surrounding area.
