The UK construction industry has remained resilient in recent years. It is still a massive – multi billion pound - force to be reckoned with. In fact, there are predictions that construction output will enjoy steady growth – by 1.3% in 2017 and by 1.2% in 2018. Being your own boss in a construction related business is a path well trodden. Some of the most established and global firms started life thanks to the vision and hard work of an ambitious entrepreneur. However, it would be a tough road ahead at the moment if you set up a totally stand alone operation. As this is such a competitive market, piggy-backing on someone else’s leg work makes a great deal of sense. So, a construction franchise could be the safest route to being self-employed and successful.
As construction and building repairs is such a massive sector, the options are extensive and depend on your skills and interests. Among the established companies willing to share their proven business models with self-employed start-ups, include niche companies such as New Driveway and the DIG It outdoor construction firm. Aspray manages building insurance claims, Magicman repairs hard surfaces, while More Than Loft Ladders carries out a wide range of building projects. Another potential construction related franchise opportunity is offered by Concept Building Solutions.
These examples illustrate the variety of options you have to start your business with trusted branding. Construction franchises also offer access to lower cost equipment, vehicles, shop fronts and IT support. A construction franchise will help with every day business management too, such as insurance, training and the vital legal compliance that is a core feature of all building projects large and small.
