The Vinden Partnership react to January's Markit/CIPS UK Construction Purchasing Managers’ Index (PMI).
Martin Bennett, a Regional Director at The Vinden Partnership – a leading multi-disciplinary consultant company to the built environment commented: “The slowdown in the industry is, on the surface, disappointing but if we look closer, the positivity about the coming 12 months from people within the industry is extremely high.
“There has been some uncertainty in the global markets recently and that has made businesses more cautious than they otherwise would be. However, with the reports of strong order books and the continued investment from the government in housebuilding and large infrastructure projects, I expect the construction industry to perform more strongly as we move further into 2016.”
