Some encouraging news from The Royal Institute of British Architects' (RIBA) Future Trends Survey for March 2012 as it has revealed that its practices are increasingly positive about their future workloads.
The majority of UK regions returned positive workload forecast figures last month. The two exceptions were the North of England and Northern Ireland.
Private housing continues to be the best performing sector, with London, the South of England, the Midlands and East Anglia doing particularly well.
Director of practice, Adrian Dobson said: "We are cautiously hopeful in reporting that for a third
consecutive month, the RIBA Future Trends Workload Index has continued its upward path.
Hopefully, this good news will soon show its effect throughout the whole of the building products industry.
