Property and Construction
The Property and Construction sector is one of the key sectors in the UK, contributing about 8% to the nation’s economy. Slowed down partially after the 2008 financial crisis, the construction activity has now been observing a constant growth for the past few years, aided by major construction projects developed by the government and the growing trend of green and sustainable construction. Key trends in the market are:
- The UK’s high reputation for building and construction services places the sector in a good position to take advantage of global and domestic market opportunities.
- Planned growth in the sector due to be double-digit by 2018
- The deal market in the Property and Construction sector has been very active recently, especially in the Thames Valley and South of England with over 130 deals completed including the acquisition of Banner Homes Group by Cala Group, the acquisition of Aston Mead by Leaders, and the flotation of John Laing Plc.
- The development of green and sustainable construction is likely to be one of the major trends for the next few years

“Following initial discussions with the vendors it was critical to work with a team of advisors who could provide the necessary skills and foresight to lead the negotiations and execute the transaction. HMT provided the financial awareness, contacts and guiding hand throughout the process. Rarely do you meet such a team of well-rounded professionals who have the capacity and ability to deliver.”
“As a national company dedicated to landscaping and grounds maintenance, Tilhill’s Landscaping and Utility divisions fit perfectly with our strategy and core business. It was a pleasure working with the team at HMT again. The bid support was invaluable, delivered with professionalism and addressing the commercial issues. I look forward to working with them in the future.”
