Building materials shortages have caused apartment building owners to resort to desperate measures to obtain the material they need.
The number of apartment buildings that are in short supply of building materials, such as concrete, steel, glass, and metal, is expected to increase by at least 70 percent by 2025, according to the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank of New York.
According to a report by the United States Chamber of Commerce, the United Kingdom has the highest percentage of apartments in short-supply in Europe, with one in six apartments in England in short demand.
The report also found that in the United Arab Emirates, the majority of apartments are in “emergency” or “critical” condition.
The UAE has been one of the worst offenders in the Middle East.
While it’s true that some apartments in London are currently in need of concrete, it’s unlikely that the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) will provide enough concrete for many London apartments by 2020, according an expert report released in March by the UBS Group.
In the report, the bank’s Global Supply Chain Solutions Group said that it had “seen no recent evidence of an increase in demand for concrete in London,” but noted that the shortage has been “particularly acute in the past few months.”
In a statement, the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea (RBK) said that “it is important that we do not let these shortages impact the safety and security of our residents, as the supply chain is highly interconnected.”
According to the RBK, it has been working with the British government to improve the supply of concrete and the availability of materials needed for the building of new high-rises.
It also said that RBK will work with the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) to provide additional supply.
While the shortage is “not necessarily an issue in the U., in other parts of the world,” such as Australia and South Africa, “there have been concerns that construction materials are being used in buildings that will not be built,” said the RBKS statement.
