Girl Power! Women in Construction

Women in Construction

The Construction Industry is still no doubt considered ‘a Man’s world’, and the gender gap in the industry is still under scrutiny today. A recent survey in the UK showed that out of the 2.8m people employed in construction, only 296,000 were women, an 87:13 split [ONS Data & Industry Surveys 2017].

What is evident however, is that women have always, and will always, have a role in construction and that is why we just loved seeing this old photo showing a group of women moving a batch of reinforced steel rods at The Concrete Works, Exmouth Junction in 1950
