Building professionals are also scanning the skies! In Calvados in 2024, it rained more often than the previous year. Three weeks of cumulative precipitation compared to two in 2023 explains the president of the Calvados building federation and which mainly impacts structural work companies, earthmoving professionals, masons. “Professionals who remain flexible, adaptable and who are also used to” recognizes Marc Guérin.

Construction at half mast in Calvados

In one year, new construction is in free fall, down 20% nationally. And Calvados is not spared, alarms Marc Guérin. Traditionally one of the most dynamic, the Calvados department is today one of the most affected by the crisis with a 30% drop in the number of constructions authorized over 12 months, 40% less on construction sites started. A very clear drop in activity which can be explained by several factors for the president of the Calvados building federation. and in particular a drop in credit authorizations granted to individuals and increased construction and material costs never fell back since covid.

My Renovation Bonus highly anticipated by professionals

From May 15, the conditions of access to the Renovation Bonus, which allows you to obtain aid to renovate and insulate old housing, will be reduced. Building professionals hope for it “a return to normal”. Because according to Marc Guérin, these are today “40,000 files which find themselves blocked“following the complexity of this aid. Simplifying the procedures can only be positive, especially since in Calvados the needs are there with “300,000 housing units classified D or below“.
