Today is the day.

As thousands of eager Brits make their way to Polling stations all the way across the UK today, there are still confused faces; baffled by the pros and cons for both campaigns, dominating our news, television, social networking sites, and most importantly; our conversations.

With an audience rife with construction and engineering specialists, we've decided to select some of the top articles - specific to our industries - arguing both to remain and to leave the EU; to help you make a more informed decision.
Brexit and the construction sector
"The effect of a Brexit on the construction sector in the UK could be enormous in some respects and negligible in others.
Brexit Analysis Bulletin: Construction and Infrastructure
"The extent of any changes will be dependent on the nature of any new relationship with Europe and/or membership of the EEA/ EFTA and it remains to be seen how this will impact the workers comprising the construction industry"
How will Brexit affect the construction industry? Two views
"As with every other industry, the construction industry has a variety of views on the prospect of Brexit, and I think it necessary for us to have views at our disposal before making our own decision. "
Brexit and the implications for UK construction
"Depending on which post-Brexit model the UK and the EU adopt, the UK’s exit from the EU may have a number of significant and far-reaching consequences for the UK construction sector. Predicting all of these consequences now is impossible but we have highlighted some of the more likely scenarios"
Construction Leaders Address EU Elephant in Referendum Debate

“The EU referendum survey has been a real eye-opener and clearly shows that the vote will be very close within the construction industry."
To leave or not to leave - How will Brexit affect the construction industry?
"As with every other industry in the UK, the construction industry has mixed views on the prospect of a Brexit. Will it help to tackle the skills shortage? How will it affect import and export of construction materials? Will there be less or more red tape to adhere to?"
How could Brexit affect the UK's construction industry?
Not only would the construction industry be affected, but so would those who are reliant upon the services it provides. From first-time property buyers to large corporations; the impact could be immediate, and significant."
So, whether you are swayed towards Brexit or Bremain, make sure you make your opinion count and head down to your local polling station by 10pm tonight!

With the Euros well and truly on its way, in true English spirit, FastTrack decided to shut our Watford office early to get down the local pub and catch the most anticipated, England v Wales game!

As you can imagine, the pub air was filled with tension; screams loud enough to shake the walls and a rather large spillage of beer left on the pub floor!

A fantastic win for England rounded off a brilliant afternoon for the FastTrack team (and left us with more than a few sore heads on Friday! morning)!
