Despite the unprecedented disruption caused by COVID-19, Britain’s construction sector has experienced the sharpest rate of output growth since 2014. Along with a surge in housebuilding, the latest snapshot of the construction sector looks positive, with commercial projects and infrastructure work all experiencing strong growth.
Current forecasts expect the UK construction industry to rebound and grow by 8% in 2021, with an average growth of 2.5% between 2022 and 2025. It’s also interesting to note that 23% of window and door installers in the UK have switched fabricators since March 2020.

Lifesaving commercial fire doors
Accommodating a wide range of commercial projects, working closely with construction giant Wates, Shelforce recently completed the supply and installation of 210 fire doors for a sheltered housing regeneration project in Acocks Green, Birmingham.
Fire and smoke tested both inside and out, as well as PAS 24 Security tested, Fireshel fire doors achieved 49 minutes fire resistance when EN 1634-1 tested, allowing piece of mind when specifying a Fire Door solution for any local authority, housing association or light commercial replacement project.
Shelforce’s Business Manager, Howard Trotter, said: “We have a valued partnership with Wates and the Pemberley Road project is a great example of what we can do here at Shelforce.

Commercial windows & doors in aluminium & uPVC
Shelforce has been chosen by producers of ITV4’s Made In Britain to feature in the latest series of the programme, telling the story of British production and some of the country’s best-loved products.

“It’s absolutely fantastic the producers of Made in Britain have chosen us – it’s a great opportunity to put Shelforce and what we do out there, and it’s great for the team to be getting the recognition they deserve for all their hard work.”
