Construction industry sees boost amid coronavirus (COVID-19)

The Association for Consultancy and Engineering has reported that despite the construction industry witnessing the quickest rise in new business since the coronavirus (COVID-19) imposed lockdown, industry leaders are still anxious about the future, fearful of what a ‘challenging winter and further potential lockdowns’ could mean for business. Data across three monitored sub-sectors revealed that the strongest performing category was home building, ‘where firms registered a sharp expansion in activity for the fourth month running’. In addition, work carried out on commercial projects rose strongly, while civil engineering activity declined 'at the sharpest rate' since May 2020.
