It is unusual for Astragal to plug a commercial organization, especially one connected with our publisher EMAP, but on this occasion an exception must be made. Technical Forecasts has teamed up with our sister organization, Glenigan, to produce a new type of construction forecast: based entirely on known events, not opinion. Technical Forecasts uses pattern recognition mathematical techniques (originally developed for the intelligence communities monitoring radar and sonar signals) to derive forecasts from previous data. It will be using Glenigan's 25-year databank, along with a series of other information sources, to provide quarterly forecasts across the sector. The forecasts are not a substitute for the application of local, specialist knowledge in relevant sectors or locations, but they should provide on average the most accurate predictions of what is most likely to happen. But don't rely on me, check www. technicalforecasts. com, or contact Paul Ives by e-mail at paul.ives@glenigan.emap.com
