Civil engineering activity built further on its September gains after four months of decline, while non‑residental was the only sector in which activity failed to grow last month
Civil engineering activity finally returned to growth in September, after four months of contraction, while the other sectors stayed steady
Activity indices rose in August for all sectors except civil engineering, which hit its lowest level for six months
Activity, employment prospects and demand are all showing slower growth, with the cost of labour, materials shortages and financial constraints on the rise.
Overall activity remains strong, but those working on non-residential and civil engineering projects are starting to experience a fall in work in hand.
Overall activity levels slipped closer to the no-growth point, although repairs and maintenance were up. New orders kept on growing strongly, but new enquiries less so.
Activity increased across all sectors compared with March, and most of all in civil engineering. Tender prices are also still on the rise, but new orders are growing more slowly
Activity is still rising, although more slowly in some sectors, while orders and enquiries are also on the up – although repair and maintenance is losing momentum
Overall construction indicators mostly showed small if steady improvement in February, though civils went the opposite way
The total activity index shows growth but gradual decline is in progress – while the UK regional index is slowly losing momentum
