Welcome to Building Value

Building Value provides advice and leadership in strategy, planning, corporate finance and communications to the key industries of construction, building materials, real estate and support services; and does so with independence, integrity and insight.

Its Chairman and founder, Tony Williams, has specialised in these industries and disciplines internationally for more than 30 years in a portfolio career as investment banker and industrialist with leading companies such as UBS, Morgan Stanley, ING Barings and ABN AMRO. He was also a Director of Tarmac plc and AMEC plc - and has wide experience as a Non Executive Director in the UK and China. 

This provides Building Value with a unique perspective and an ideal base from which to proffer help and direction; and it does so from a Head Office in west London and a Scandinavian subsidiary in Sweden.

Building Value: it does just that

October 2019 - UK Housebuilding in Q3 2019: Halloween and beyond

Here, we dip into Agatha Christie's lexcion for what was a real page turner of a Q3; and one filled with anticipation of an orderly Brexit. The British Pound versus the Euro is a barometer of the latter; and housebuilders' share prices are, in turn, joined at the hip with this exchange rate.  See Papers

August 2019 - Israel Nash

The entire staff of Building Value's Swedish office went to this one in Karlstad, central Sweden on a hot August night. Israel was in viseral form, too, and we got to hob-nob with him afterwards. It doesn't come much bigger or better. See him if you can on the next tour; and he goes everywhere.

June 2019 - UK construction bolstered by infrastructure and housing through 2021

Experian, where Building Value is an advisor, has updated its forecasts for UK construction output by way of summer fare. Last year was just in positive territory (+0.3%) and the number for 2019 is +0.9% with +2.0% for 2020 and +2.8% for 2021 - all assuming an orderly Brexit. Infrastructure and Housing are the the big winners with £5.3 billion and £4 billion of new work expected, respectively, over the forecast period (ex-inflation). Meantime, Commercial Building is the big loser with a deficit of £3.4 billion over the same period.
