Initially trained as an engineer, Martin worked in manufacturing, assembling locomotives and generators. In 1982 he left the factory floor and spent seven years retraining to become an economist.
Upon gaining an MSc in 1989 he took up a post as consultant economist to the construction industry at the National Economic Development Office (NEDO). In 1992 he and his business colleague set up Construction Forecasting & Research (CFR), the venture that took over NEDO's construction forecasting and analysis activities. Between 1988 and 1995 Martin co-authored and edited a wide range of construction market publications and forecasts, and was secretary to and co-author of NEDO's construction forecasts.
In 1995 Martin left CFR and set up Hewes & Associates. His aim was to provide the construction industry with an in-depth and independent national and regional construction forecasting service. Hewes & Associates is now a leading provider of forecasting, information and data services to the construction and related industries.
Hewes & Associates is an independent business, and as such its forecasts are free of any outside influence. It analyses and forecasts economic matters as it sees them, not as it would like them to be. As such its long-held views concerning the present economic crisis, whilst pessimistic, have so far proved correct.
