The ONS published their latest house price index for February this week, whilst the CLC and other bodies warn of rising material and labour costs.
This week saw angry back-and-forth correspondence between the Government, developers and product manufacturers, as the cladding remediation saga continues.
More housing developers signed up to the Governments Building Safety Pledge this week, as apprenticeship starts show signs of improving.
The Construction Leadership Council has issued a report on how the industry can mitigate the impact of the Ukraine crisis on material supply.
This week saw HBF Executive Chairman Stewart Baseley write to Michael Gove, to set out a three-point plan for resolving the cladding crisis.
The ONS have revealed that house prices rose by almost 11% in 2021, as Gove tells developers they could be blocked from building if they do not assist in cladding remediation.
