The Vinden Partnership reacts to the latest ONS construction output figures for December.
Martin Bennett, a Regional Director of The Vinden Partnership - a leading multi-disciplinary consultant company to the built environment – said: “The drop in output in the fourth quarter is a slight disappointment but there is some encouraging news within these figures.
“Comparing 2015’s figures with the previous year shows that output increased by 3.4%. Also looking at just December’s stats, output for the industry rose by 1.5%, recovering well from the decrease reported by the ONS in November.
“The rise in new work throughout the entirety of 2015 in comparison with 2014 shows that the construction industry is heading in the right direction.
“Housebuilding beginning to pick up pace is also extremely welcome news and something we want to see continue into the future.”
