Dublin, Ireland, October 14th, 2021 — Linesight , a global consultancy firm, today
announced the latest update to its Knowledge Centre, a construction industry resource
with key data, trends, indices and analyses across multiple sectors . The bi-annual
update provides a comprehensive view of the industry’s current challenges and
opportunities, and includes details on material inflation costs for Ireland with projections for the year ahead.
“We are seeing a significant increase in construction demand across all sectors, representing a huge shift from our last update in March 2021, as the country finally emerges from COVID-19 restrictions”
said Stephen Ashe, Senior Director, Linesight
“With record GDP growth reported in Quarter 3, and a better-than-expected budget deficit of €13.2 billion announced this week, we are seeing the pent-up demand from the past eighteen months materialise. However, there are significant new pressures on the industry, as we deal with material price escalation, skills shortages and continuing logistics and supply chain complexities driven largely by COVID-19 and Brexit. We are confident, however, that the industry will continue to respond with agility to these new challenges, as it has done throughout the pandemic.”
