The Northern Powerhouse Strategy is a bold and ambitious plan to address the imbalance between the economies of the North and those of the South. The North has been historically neglected, with London focused policies, infrastructure and industries leaving it at an unfair disadvantage. To address these systematic issues a proactive and multi-city approach was necessary. Championed by many industry and government leaders, The Northern Powerhouse plan is delivering substantial investment, regeneration and infrastructure. This, in turn, is boosting Northern Powerhouse construction far above the national average.
The North West’s Role in the Northern Powerhouse
The North West has remained a vital region in the Northern Powerhouse. The cities of Manchester and Liverpool have been crucial in delivering new opportunities. Currently, they are both valuable hotspots for the construction industry and the Northern Powerhouse plan. The North West region has been leading the way in several areas, from regeneration to football results, to construction levels. A rapid process of renewal and North West investment has created a need for more construction than ever before. Vast infrastructure projects like HS2 and new residential developments like One Baltic Square are providing construction contracts and jobs across the region.
