Capital Projects – what is happening out there?
Peter Cummings was a last minute stand in for Jon White of Turner & Townsend but provided a very dynamic, interactive overview of the market conditions for Turner & Townsend projects and advisory services.
An overview of the operating conditions for the London market was comforting as Peter articulated how change is always happening and if it was not Brexit, it would be something else that has a bearing on trading conditions. Peter showed the analytics which signified that although slightly sedatory, the market was in fact in a comfortable business as usual state.
Peter certainly provided us with the statistics to enable us all to sleep at night.
