About The Construction Forum

The UK construction sector – in particular in the South-East of England and in London – is dependent to a significant degree by Polish workers. Continuing lack of certainty over Brexit hovers over the industry, in particular access to labour, settled status for EU citizens, new tariffs on construction materials sourced from the EU. In the two and half years since the referendum, the British government hasn’t begun making the serious investment needed to boost skills training in the sector (as set out in the recommendations of the Farmer Committee report of 2016).

How will Polish entrepreneurs – business owners working within the UK construction sector – react to Brexit? How many are likely to leave the UK, how many will stay? How will they adapt?

This event, the third annual meeting of Polish owners of construction-sector businesses in the UK will address these questions. It will be a chance to meet potential business partners, clients, solution providers – and to learn how to cope in uncertain trading conditions. Polish entrepreneurs are a hardy breed – many have experienced conditions that even the hardest of Brexit would be unable to match – lack of goods in the shops, rampant inflation, soaring unemployment and crumbling infrastructure – and yet many survived and thrived despite all that.

The event will serve as a forum for exchange of ideas, of best practice – and of business cards.
