Announcements included in the Queen's Speech bring welcome news for construction firms such as AMS

Last month's Queen's Speech gave an insight into what Boris Johnson's government has planned, with spending boosts mentioned consistently throughout.

One industry in particular that may see benefits over the coming years is the construction sector, with many of the announcements reflecting key pledges from the Conservative party manifesto leading up to the election.

Announcements stacking up to billions of pounds will be welcomed across the sector, with plans including new transport schemes, housing, building new schools and hospitals - skilling up the workforce and increasing the powers of regional authorities across the country to spend money on essential projects.

AMS, an Edinburgh based firm offering design, consultancy and project management services, will, no doubt, be optimistic about what these announcements could mean for the sector as a whole. With over 25 years' experience working within construction, AMS consistently deliver complex technical projects within the UK, Europe and the rest of the world. 

Most recently, the firm has been working on the development of the Queen Alexandra Hospital in Portsmouth following the collapse of Carillion. AMS were able to take over the project from Carillion with little notice, due to a reputation for delivering ambitious projects, not only within tight time-frames but also without causing disruption to the client’s operations, crucial for working around a functioning hospital.

Managing director Stephen Martin describes their approach to The Parliamentary Review as "smart consultancy" stating that he hopes the AMS approach will soon "become the new traditional." 

Martin also stated he hopes "that future small businesses will be given the opportunity to prove the worth of their ingenuity, not just for the good of their economy but for clients, the institutions they build and the generations that will depend upon them." 

The coming months and years will be telling as to what new projects are implemented across the country and what approach will be taken to completing them.
