Workforce losses would put construction pipeline under threat, says RICS
POST-Brexit, should UK lose access to single market, 176,500 jobs could be under threat, putting some of the country’s biggest infrastructure and construction projects at risk, the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) has revealed.
Latest figures show that 8% of the UK’s construction workers are EU nationals. RICS has cautioned that for Brexit to succeed, it is essential to secure continued access to the EU Single Market or to put alternative plans in place to safeguard the future of the property and construction sectors in the UK.
The country is already facing skills shortages; however, construction professions have not yet been added to the ‘UK Shortage Occupations List’. RICS wants the Government to agree on the “passporting” of professional services - including chartered surveyors - which are essential to many global, UK-based real estate firms and the projects they support.
