UK Construction Market Update - August

The Build UK State of Trade Survey for Q2 2016, shows a positive but stabilising picture of prospects for contractors, with 46% operating at over 90% capacity. Contractors also saw an increase in output of 22% for Q2 2016, significantly more than the 5% growth recorded in Q1 2016 and the 3% seen in Q4 2015.
