On behalf of everyone at Copper we would like to wish you a very merry Christmas and hopefully a prosperous new year.

This has been one of the most unpredictable, difficult and demanding years that anyone can remember. We know how many unique challenges that you, and your organisations will have faced, and we are proud of the support that our dedicated team have been able to offer along the way.

There are glimmers of hope that 2021 may be better. It’s too early to tell when we will be in position to declare a recovery. But when that comes, it’s clear that the infrastructure and development sector will play a critical role ensuring that the UK is able to become a better place after the pandemic.

There are exciting visions emerging for the future. For the first time, achieving net zero carbon emissions is beginning to look like a viable reality. Through improved transport and communications infrastructure, we may become able to address the low levels of productivity in the UK. And we have an opportunity to spread the benefits of economic development to communities across the country.

In our small way Copper is able to play a part in supporting the projects that will make that vision a reality. But we can achieve nothing on our own, and we are delighted to be able to work alongside all of our clients and partners next year, as we strive to achieve impactful results.

In the meantime, we hope that you are able to have a relaxing, peaceful and hopefully merry Christmas break, and that 2021 will begin to become something approaching normal, or maybe better than that.
