Multiplex commits to gender balance for graduates.

With the tagline ‘leave no one behind’, Multiplex’s social equity strategy sets the target of having 30% of its executive leadership team female or from an ethnically diverse background by 2030.

With an immediate target for 50% of graduate recruits to be female next year, Multiplex says that by 2025 at least 10% of projects to be led by a female team member.

Other 2025 targets in the wide-ranging strategy include zero exposure to diesel emissions from plant on 100% of projects and 33% of all spending to go on SMEs (small and medium sized enterprises).

UK managing director Callum Tuckett said: “As one of the largest industries in the world, construction has considerable scope to lead the way and implement the changes necessary to contribute towards reducing inequality and building more inclusive societies.

“We believe there is an urgent need to recalibrate, to ensure a coordinated and well-planned response, with social equity integrated into our decarbonisation roadmap and at the very heart of our approach to ESG (environmental, social and governance).

“Our strategy lays out very clearly the actions we are going to take as a business but also, and more importantly, how we will be trying to influence our supply chain, our clients and wider industry stakeholders to maximise our collective impacts and ensure that no one is left behind.”

The cost of structural steel has soared by almost three quarters, while the average cost of construction materials has increased by almost 25 per cent on an annual basis, latest figures from the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) have revealed.

The latest data showed material prices for all work had increased by 24.5 per cent year on year to October 2021, and were up 1 per cent from September.

Fabricated structural steel has soared in price by 70.6 per cent compared to the same period in 2020, with imported sawn and planed wood rising by 69.6 per cent, and concrete reinforcing bars by 60.5 per cent.

The release of the data comes days after a report from the Construction Leadership Council (CLC), which noted that shortages of certain materials were likely to continue into next year. Imported materials, such as timber, are seeing the largest gulfs between demand and supply, the group said.

Inflation has hit almost every major global economy as countries begin to emerge from their COVID-19 restrictions while others, such as China, are hit by regional lockdowns and energy cuts. Earlier this week, European inflation hit 4.9 per cent, the highest since the Euro was introduced.

One major construction product did however fall in price, with screws falling by 5.8 per cent.

The breakdown of cost inflation saw repair and maintenance costs rise by 26.2 per cent, new housing by 22.6 per cent, and other ‘new work’ by 24 per cent.

The BEIS report also noted that production of cement and clinker fell by 11.5 per cent year-on-year to eight million tonnes in 2020. This compares to 9.1 million tonnes in the previous year. Pre-recession production peaked in 2007 at 11.9 million tonnes.

Sales of concrete however rose by 4.7 per cent in the second quarter of 2021 compared to the previous three months as the construction industry continued to emerge from the pandemic.

Imports of construction materials increased by £532m in the third quarter of 2021 compared to the previous quarter, an increase of 10.7 per cent.

The quarterly trade deficit widened by £567m to £3.68bn in Q3 2021 compared to the previous quarter, an increase of 18.2 per cent.

September saw a rebound in sales at builders’ merchant sales across Great Britain, making the third quarter of 2021 the second-highest quarter on record – by value, if not by volume.

Point-of-sale data collated for the Builders Merchant Building Index (BMBI) shows the value of sales was up by 6.2% in September 2021 compared to August and by 14.9% compared to September 2020.

However, with inflation pushing up the price of building products, these numbers do not mean that builders are necessarily buying any more products and thus doing more work, as we might expect. It just means that they are spending more money on their materials.

Year-on-year sales of Timber & Joinery Products were up 38.7% by value in September. Sales of Kitchens & Bathrooms rose 11.8% on the year to recorded its highest-ever BMBI monthly sales (although BMBI only started in 2015).

Compared with pre-Covid times, the total value of sales in September 2021 was 24.5% higher than September 2019, with one more trading day this year. Much of this growth is owed to Timber & Joinery Products (54.1%) and Landscaping (40.2%). Without these two categories in the calculations, the two-year growth is 13.3%.

After sales softened in August, the bounce-back in September made the third quarter of 2021 the second best for builders’ merchants since the record keeping began six years ago. Only the previous quarter, Q2 2021, has seen higher sales.

Total value sales in Q3 2021 were 17.2% higher than Q3 2020, with one less trading day this year. Timber & Joinery products led the field, growing 43.9%. Excluding Timber, total merchant sales still grew by 9.6%. Like-for-like-sales increased by 19.1%.

Comparing Q3 2021 with pre-Covid Q3 2019, the overall value of sales was up 18.4% with one less trading day this year. Timber & Joinery products were up 48.9% and Landscaping products were up 30.2%. Like-for-like sales were up 20.2%.

Quarter-on-quarter, sales were down 2.4% in Q3 2021 compared to Q2, despite the three extra trading days in Q3. Kitchens & Bathrooms and Timber & Joinery were up modestly but Landscaping was down nearly a quarter. Like-for-like sales were 7.0% lower than in Q2.
