Construction is a huge industry, accounting for almost 7% of the UK economy and providing 2.9 million jobs (about 10% of the workforce) in over 280,000 businesses.
As the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) said in 2019, “construction underpins our economy and society. Few sectors have such an impact on communities across the UK or have the same potential to provide large numbers of high-skilled, well-paid jobs.”
The construction and building services industry creates and maintains homes, schools and hospitals, offices and factories, and transport and energy infrastructure. It is vital to us as a country.
What this means to you
If you’re in the construction and building services sector, you’ll probably be balancing lots of different things at the same time. Large projects have so many different skills and trades, materials and deadlines involved, whether you’re responsible for one element or for managing the whole thing, you’re dependent on others and others are dependent on you.
You need your technology to help you. You need equipment and services that are reliable, and a support service you can depend on to fix problems quickly.
Why we are good
We provide IT support and technology services to many companies in the building services and construction areas. We cover Exeter, Plymouth, Torquay, Paignton and Exmouth, as well as the rest of Devon, Cornwall and Somerset. We also have clients in places like Hampshire, Kent, London, Northamptonshire and even Scotland.
We work with larger companies as well as smaller or more specialised businesses.
What we can do
If, like most in the industry, you’re too busy to be worrying about your own IT, we can help. Whether you need a problem fixed, want to look at some new technology, or are finding your current IT support provider isn’t flexible enough or lacks a personal touch, at Think IT we think we have an approach and a range of services that might work for you.
