RIBA’s Future Trends survey also warns of tender price inflation
Architects’ belief that the private housing sector will provide a pipeline of work has plummeted over the summer.
The RIBA’s latest Future Trends report shows the profession’s confidence dropped from a score of +18 in June to +7 in July, a dip the institute described as “fairly dramatic”. Any score above 0 indicates survey respondents expect workloads to grow.
Over the same period the other workload forecasts for other sectors showed little change. The commercial forecast stood at +5 and the community sector at +2. For the public sector the balance figure was -2, up marginally from -4 last month.
