UK Construction Forecast

Our UK Construction Forecast provides a solid base from which businesses involved in the construction sector can draw the informed conclusions needed to take major decisions. The UK Construction Forecast is compiled by a panel of experts spanning all aspects of the construction industry.

What does the UK Construction Forecast cover?

A huge spectrum of data is used to assemble the UK Construction forecast, ranging from the big picture of the UK economy, including GDP, inflation, household incomes and regional house prices, to detailed understanding of the impact of government policy and work programmes and major transport and energy projects.

Furthermore, there are detailed breakdowns of output and new orders across all types of construction activity:

  • Private and social housing
  • Infrastructure
  • Public building
  • Industrial and commercial construction
  • Repair and maintenance
  • Government policy and its likely effect on the industry are assessed, and initiatives at a more local level are subjected to similar scrutiny.
