UK Construction Market Update - April


The ONS have released their Construction Output in Great Britain: March 2017 and January to March 2017 figures, showing that construction grew for the 5th consecutive period on a 3 month on 3 month basis, rising by 0.2% for Q1 2017. Supporting this positive view the Glenigan Index April 2017 shows the value of work starting on site in the 3 months to April was 6% higher than during the same period a year ago, offsetting earlier weakness at the end of 2016.
