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
Little growth was in evidence as most indices stayed steady or contracted, while all sectors experienced less work in hand
The total activity index indicated growth, while R&M index rose for the fifth consecutive month
The total activity index indicates growth, and residential and non-residential activity is in positive territory
The total activity index stayed steady at its highest level since the referendum, with civil engineering growing especially fast
The total activity index rose by four points in August. The R&M index fell by a point, staying just inside positive territory
The total activity index remained stable in July. The R&M index grew and returned to positive territory and the orders index was one point up from June’s figure. Experian Economics reports
The total activity index was unchanged in June, signifying continued expansion, although both the R&M index and civil engineering sector contracted. Experian Economics reports
Total activity growth remains steady but R&M continues to slide, while materials costs have risen notably and there has been a positive level of activity in nearly all regions. Experian Economics reports
Labour shortages and cost increases loom large as several sector indices start to look a little limp
The repair and maintenance activity index returns to positive territory for the first time since September but the total activity index remains unchanged
