How can you manage change in the Construction and real estate sector?

The UK and Irish construction and real estate sector has gone through significant turmoil over the last few years. The market is continually changing as businesses look to restructure and rationalise whilst re-evaluating developments, investments and contracts. Many developments were on hold during the period of upheaval in local and world banks, order books can continue to seem patchy for construction, but increasingly investors appear to be returning to the market on the island of Ireland and are searching for products at sensible prices. We recognise the need to effectively manage costs at a time where the market is under pressure and to help maximise post tax returns. In these times you need an advisor who genuinely listens and takes the time to ask the difficult questions and the questions you might not have thought about.
