During the last week or so there have been a couple of important SPRA meetings including the SPRA Technical Committee and last Thursday the SSG (SPRA Sustainability Group). Also, on Friday 31st July, nominations closed for SPRA Council and Technical Committee positions. An update is given on this for members in the ‘Members Area’ of this week’s Weekly News.
The main industry news this week centres around the continued impact of Covid-19 with new guidance from the UK government concerning ‘oubreak management’.
Also included this week is an update on a new sub-group formed by the Scottish Government working under the Covid-19 Construction Leadership Forum.
In the ‘Members Area’ we highlight two important surveys, one from the CLC and the other from the CPA related to the impact Covid-19 is having on the construction industry. The latter looking at the ‘state of trade’ in Q2 this year. \
We trust that the enclosed is informative and provides a wider view on construction industry issues over the last week as well as some specific information regarding SPRA activity.
Wishing all SPRA members a safe and successful week.
