Pin Board is pleased to report that the UK construction industry showed some signs of improvement in July with activity growing by 2.2% according to figures from the Office of National Statistics.
Although the overall outlook is uncertain the figures do give cause for optimism in the market, especially with moderate further growth predicted for the period until the end of September. However, the sector is still 10.1% down in the year to July, but this is less than anticipated earlier in the year.
The construction industry plays a vital role in overall the health of the UK economy and it is good to report better news - however small it might be.
Pinnacle Consulting is a specialist construction sales recruitment agency covering the whole of the UK.
