The word construction has roots in the Latin word meaning "together” which couldn’t be more relevant right now, as we all look for a glimmer of light at the end of the dark pandemic tunnel. VodaLend is poised for the intense recovery phase ahead, ready to partner with construction industry business owners. We are here for those needing to scale with a bridging loan or require capital to invest in a business pivot.

    To help you strategise your next steps, here’s a look at six construction industry drivers in the small business space, which could be useful if you’re looking for a fresh business blueprint.

     Urban relocation opportunities for construction SMMEs

    Right now, many people are leaving high-density areas to seek out a more socially distanced suburbia or even further afield in small towns and rural areas. This presents SMMEs in the construction industry with the opportunity to take on projects that are too big for homeowners to tackle themselves.

     Home office renovations increasing

    With scores of people now having to work at home due to the impact of the pandemic, a savvy small business can position themselves as remodelling professionals and help people to create a home office to help create a productive space in their homes. 

     Social distancing renovations

    Public buildings all need to ensure there is ample physical distance for customers and employees. This includes renovating bathrooms, kitchen spaces and open plan offices to create a working environment that is more conducive to social distancing.
