SCSI-PwC Construction Market Monitor 2020

06 October, 2020

We are delighted to present our 2020 SCSI-PwC Construction Market Monitor, representing the views and insights of over 300 members of the Society of Chartered Surveyors Ireland (SCSI). Due to the unprecedented impact of COVID-19 on the Irish construction sector, a supplemental survey was released to SCSI members in June 2020 in order to gauge the impact of the pandemic on the sector at that time and to accurately reflect members' expectations for the industry over the next 12 months.

In a year marked by huge disruption to the industry, the report looks at the impact and costs of COVID-19 on construction in both the public and private arenas. The outlook for construction in terms of activity levels remains positive, but growth and output are coming under pressure. Companies in the industry have been hit on a number of fronts. The report highlights the issues they face, including delayed projects, site safety, supply chain bottlenecks and the nature of the way buildings are used now and in the post-pandemic future. It also looks at the potential impacts of Brexit on an industry already reeling from the impacts of the pandemic.
