You can see the fruits of our booming construction sector in our evolving skylines. Across the West Midlands, £7.1bn GVA is attributed to our construction sector. By 2030, this will increase to £10.9bn with the influx of new investments attracted to our region. Overall, our local economy is worth almost £120bn.

Meanwhile, we are on track to build 18,000 homes per year, with 80% of them revitalising brownfield land, while delivering on net-zero carbon objectives.

We are growing and thriving as a region, presenting countless investment opportunities for businesses to invest and grow with us. Our goal is to help you hit the ground running when you invest in the West Midlands.

Qualify and plan

If you want to invest in the UK, we can help you achieve the best fit within the West Midlands economy. As your experts on the inside, we are the first port of call for inbound real estate and investment information.

We have clear routes to approvals, recognised by the Government as best practice. The WMCA Board includes the Mayor and all Council Leaders, enabling them to make rapid and decisive decisions.

Identify funding streams

We recognise that the West Midlands is an attractive place for construction and investment. There are many finance aids available to those looking to invest.

We will work with you to understand your business needs, then help you find the right grant funding or signpost you towards a government-backed financing route that will reduce the risk on relevant projects.

Research and marketing

Working with the Local Authorities, we help take investable opportunities to market. When a site is ready for development or regeneration, we conduct market research, package up the proposition and showcase them to prospective bidders.

We can help your investments succeed at no extra cost to you. Contact a member of our team to find out exactly how we can help you.
