The JLL and Glenigan UK Commercial Construction Activity Index – Q1 2017

​UK construction sector optimistic despite slowing commercial activity.

Commercial construction activity in the 12 months to the end of Q1 2017 decreased to £15.0 billion, down 9.7% on the previous quarter. March data revealed a loss of momentum, particularly in the level of new build activity, which totalled £8.9 billion (down 13.7% q-o-q). Refurbishment activity was more resilient (down just 3.0% q-o-q).

The full report highlights:
• How much construction activity has picked up over the past quarter
• The increases and decreases across the UK
• The movement across different sectors including industrial, offices, retail, hotels, education, medical and community
•  Construction volumes by new build or refurbishment
• A construction costs and procurement update
