London Construction During Covid-19
Why now could the best time to continue or start your renovation or building project ?
Construction and architecture are some of the few industries in London that will keep going during and after lockdown.
We are going to share 4 aspects to seize the opportunity to continue or start the planning phase of your home project – with flexibility to choose when you start the build.
1. Use your free time at home:
During this time that most of us are at home and likely spending most of our day online – there´s plenty of time to design ideas for your new home project that you want to renovate or build.
2. Avoid the post-pandemic rush:
Once the lockdown could be lifted, we are predicting a rush for building and construction. That´s why it is important to keep your plans moving forward now.
The waiting time for the council approval will also increase significantly once this situation returns to normal, so we recommend to submit your plans early and avoid this possible scenario where everyone will want their plans to be approved.
3. Most of contractors and architects are working from home:
Despite any lockdown, contractors and architects continue to work and provide services to their clients from home digitally.
It is an excellent opportunity to work closely with you and communicate regularly and remotely.
4. Low interest rates:
The Bank of England cuts interest rates to all-time low to limit the economic effect from COVID-19. Borrowing money to do your project has never been cheaper.
Instead of delaying your plans to build a new home or renovate later on, now’s prime time to take advantage of low borrowing costs by starting the design and planning part of the project.
