Construction activity jumps highest since Oct ’14


UK Construction has seen the sharpest jump in the number of new orders in February since October 2014.

The steeper rates of increase were seen in Residential, Commercial and Civil Engineering. Residential activity saw the steepest rate of growth.

Construction companies have linked their new orders to the improving economic conditions and a positive outlook in business. However, some spending decisions have been delayed due to the uncertainty in the outcome of the upcoming General Election.
