The EU Referendum; A Brief Recap.

On the 23rd of June 2016 the United Kingdom voted to leave the European Union, in order to fulfil the wishes of the public, Article 50 wassigned on the 28th March 2017 and delivered on the 29 th March 2017. As such, according to this deadline, the United Kingdom will have left the EU by 11pm (UK Time) on the 29th of March 2019. This is only a few months away and as such many people and businesses are concerned about the future of the country and the uncertainty surrounding Brexit.

Brexit And The Office Fit Out Industry.

Brexit is often spoken of as our ticket to sovereignty and success, or as a ticket to isolation and ruin. However, are there any risks or opportunities for businesses in the office interiors sector? Are there steps we can take to maximise gains and mitigate losses as a result of Brexit?

The Opportunities.

If Brexit results in a reduction of “red tape" this could provide the UK government with the freedom required to provide small businesses with state aid, which could potentially result in more businesses upgrading their workplaces, boosting the wellbeing of the employees in them. Indeed, the Active blog is filled with blogs discussing the advantages of an office environment focused on boosting both productivity and wellbeing.

Reasons For Concern.

Brexit provides both ideas for opportunity and potential problems. One such reason with regards to office fit outs is with regards to banks. Indeed, if the repercussions of Brexit are bad, banks may be less willing to lend money; as such some businesses could struggle to borrow the required funds in order to refurbish their place of work.

Will Brexit Be Good Or Bad?

Unfortunately it's difficult to say. On one hand the potential for legislative freedom, open trade, and a reduction in “red tape" could provide numerous advantages to numerous industries across the United Kingdom. However, the negative economic repercussions could also be very problematic for businesses throughout the country. As such, it is very difficult to make accurate predictions with regards to a post-Brexit future for the United Kingdom.
