The construction industry: forever plagued by leadership and policy changes – comment from MHA


Brendan Sharkey, head of MHA MacIntyre Hudson’s Property & Construction sector comments on the result of the UK General Election:

In construction and real estate we can expect to see:


  • Sterling fall against the major currencies, facilitating UK assets such has London housing stocks and commercial property being cherry picked
  • Stagnation, if not a slight fall, in house prices across the UK
  • Local authorities trying to take more control over the delivery of affordable housing
  • Less volume in house sales, which will lower the Stamp Duty Land Tax take for the government
  • Build to Rent to continue apace, as the rental market has not gone away. The companies in this market may find less competition for quality sites.

Manchester: It’s check in time.


Hoteliers and interior designers will join the specialist furniture trade as the lead summer trade event—The Manchester Furniture Show—throws open its doors for its 2017 edition next month.

The July 16–18 trade fair takes place at Manchester Central, opposite the city’s grand old Midland Hotel. It will feature the finest exponents of UK and international furniture and home accents supply, with over 150 companies due to exhibit.

High-class Italian upholstery company Bardi will make its first UK appearance of recent years as Midlands manufacturer Alpha Designs showcases its new Molly sofa range, which has been elegantly put together with padded arms, generous seating and luxurious fabrics.

Kebony cladding blends seamlessly into natural rock


With the vision to ‘face the world’, the Homan family have created a perfect property for their family, located on the island of Hvasser. Owing to the island’s dramatic weather and the cabin’s exposed position by the sea a low maintenance wood which would withstand all weather conditions was required. As a result Kebony, a beautiful wood recommended by leading architects, was selected for the cabins façade.

Designed by architect Pernilla Johansson, the striking cabin was intended to stand out from the more traditional cabins in the area. However, the owners also believed it was essential to look to the future and build a cabin fit for the modern day, with the capacity to cater for the needs of their dynamic family. Throughout the summer, the family is able to embrace outdoor life from the roof terrace which offers a breath-taking view of the cabin’s natural surroundings. The terrace is constructed with closely set railings which work as an extension of the walls to create a sheltered lounge suitable for southern Norway’s famously unpredictable weather. When the weather does close in the sliding doors leading out to the terrace are pulled to, ensuring the family can enjoy the magnificent view, regardless of the weather.

The Kent Event Centre welcomes Construction Expo back on Thursday October 5th 2017

Construction Engineering Design Expo 2017 hr

The Kent Event Centre welcomes Construction Expo back on Thursday October 5th 2017. Run by the Kent Invicta Chamber of Commerce it brings together construction professionals from the South East and across the UK, combining a free to attend exhibition, conference and large demonstration areas.

2016 saw over 3,000 delegates and more than 200 exhibitors including some of the UK’s largest contractors. Plans for 2017 will make it the biggest and best event yet.

 Project updates and industry challenges discussed

Once again, Construction Expo will be hosting keynote speakers, panel sessions and workshops that will update you on major developments and regeneration projects and look at new opportunities along with discussing critical industry topics. Areas that will be covered include:

Frenchic Easy Crackle


Launched in late 2014, Frenchic offer a huge range of high quality chalk & mineral paint that perfectly coincides with the upcycling revolution, helping DIY enthusiasts give old or unused furniture an entirely new look without skimping on style or substance. Earlier this month Frenchic announced their Al Fresco range for all your outdoor furniture needs, and now Frenchic continue to take the interiors world by storm by launching their new crackle effect.

The Frenchic Easy Crackle can be applied between two contrasting colours of Frenchic Furniture Paint, the first giving the colour of the crackle and the second the overall colour of the project, to give an aged appearance to your DIY projects. As with all Frenchic products, the Frenchic Easy Crackle is EN71:3 compliant and is therefore safe to use on children’s toys, and does not include VOC’s for an all-natural finish.

The Frenchic Easy Crackle is available for £9.95 per 250ml can at and stockists nationwide.

I do very much hope this is of interest – please also note we can provide tips from their ambassador and upcycling king Max McMurdo if of interest.

Binopolis does the double with the launch of two, stunning new Wesco bins

Binopolis red I Master sensor recycling bin

The new Wesco Big Double Master Recycling Bin in Almond, left, and Wesco I-Master Sensor
Recycling bin in red, right, have 40-litre capacities and cost £219, with free, next-day delivery

 Specialist retailer has added two stunning, new, premium Wesco models to its comprehensive portfolio of design-led, freestanding bins. Moving away from the Wesco iconic, statement bins such as the rocket-shaped Spaceboy, these models still demonstrate functionality and style. However, one bin makes the perfect choice for those who may be looking for something to fit into a tight space in a kitchen or a model with the technology to open the lid with the simple wave of your hand.

Featuring a slim-line, space-saving shape, the Big Double Master Recycling Bin will fit in tight spaces and can tuck comfortably below worktops thanks to its butterfly opening design. Operated by a steel foot pedal, the high quality, stainless steel lid has an integrated dampener for super-smooth opening and soft closing. Further thoughtful design features include wheels at the back, a handle at the front for easy moving and rubber feet for extra stability. It measures H66.1cm by W27.5cm by D53.2cm.
