Launching BSRIA Business

BSRIA open day, 1970

BSRIA membership open day, 1970

A resurgence of popular interest in the ’70s comes as no great surprise if you consider the ways in which the last double-dip recession resonates today. For example, deregulation and the boom in mortgage lending in the 1970s played no small part in the current volatile housing market.  

The BSRIA Statistics Bulletin has its roots in the 1970s, as we recognised at that time a need for better market intelligence to help businesses get the competitive edge. It’s still a tough market and members tell us that our data to inform future business strategy is valuable – but we’ve subsequently made many improvements to the publication. I’m pleased to say that this month we’re launching a new suite of business services for our members including the new Business Bulletin: 

Total consultants workload during last three months compared with the same period last year.

New services:

  •  Business Bulletin (replacing the Statistics Bulletin) offering quarterly analysis and data on the economic outlook, construction market, M&E contracting and more. We also provide unique data from BSRIA’s Consultants’ Workload Survey. If you work for a consulting engineering  company and would like to contribute to our quarterly survey, please get in touch.
  • Business Network – register  for the launch of the first of a series of business networking opportunities on 11th September.
  • Monthly e-newsletter with the latest business information and technical resources – sign up here.
  • Online business resources on our members-only web pages www.bsria.co.uk/business.

The July issue of the Business Bulletin will be included in our quarterly members mailing (also look out for more information in the next issue of Delta T).

Do let me know if you have any further suggestions…and I’d like to hear a few stories about what it was like for your business in the ’70s…and some pictures please!
