2020, with the impact that Brexit is having on the economy, began as a year with already considerable disruption to the way we work. It will prove to be a very challenging year for us all in the UK construction industry as a result of this impending change, and the impact that COVID-19 is currently inflicting on our economy. CLS will endeavour to help our clients, wherever possible, to navigate this difficult time within the construction industry.
