Civil engineers overwhelmingly fear Brexit is bad for the industry

Brexit 3x2

More than two thirds of civil engineers fear that the decision to leave the European Union is bad news for the industry.

Sixty-five per cent of 500 engineers polled by New Civil Engineer between 1 and 14 July said that the Brexit vote would have a negative impact on civil engineering. 

Just 13% believed Britain’s decision to leave the European Union would have a positive impact on the industry. Even fewer – 6% – believed it would have no impact with the remainder saying they did not know what the impact would be.

The response echoes the view of many industry leaders spoken to by New Civil Engineer. Most were keen to secure a Remain vote pre-referendum and have been cautious in their response since.
