New data collected by Savills for the British Property Federation has highlighted that, despite the ‘broken’ UK housing market, the capacity remains for new homes to be constructed and planned at great speed.

According to the research, there are now almost 96,000 build-to-rent homes complete, under construction or in planning, showing a 40% jump on the figures from earlier this year.

Contractors are leading the rapid growth, with many joining in the race to supply private rented housing and 19% of planned rooms directly developed by building firms.

For contractors in a time of sudden and unexpectedly fast growth, it can be a time to make a lot of money. Without the right software in place, however, it can be easy to let multiple new projects run out of control, over budget and well over time.

With housebuilding specific software, you can not only easily stay abreast of a number of projects, covering everything from project updates to costings and invoices, but also plan ahead for future growth – or even a stalling economy.

A program like Eque2’s Housebuilding lets you use real-time information to analyse past projects and forecast more accurately for future ones; just because the industry looks promising doesn’t mean you should get complacent!
