Our Area Director, Phil Sharp talks about Bristol’s ‘Construction Boom’ and how Sphere Solutions can help!

As I reflect on Bristol, a city that embodies a unique blend of rich history and unwavering innovation, I can’t help but acknowledge the construction renaissance currently unfolding before us. Cast your memory back to 2021, and you might recall the initial stirrings of what has since evolved into a whirlwind of construction and development activity. Today, the Bristol skyline is adorned with no fewer than 21 cranes, and it’s abundantly clear that more are poised to join the ranks.

In this blog post, we embark on a journey to explore Bristol’s construction boom—a phenomenon of profound significance. We’ll also delve into how Sphere Solutions, where I serve as Area Director, leverages its expertise as a seasoned construction recruitment specialist to play a pivotal role in supporting this flourishing industry.
