Construction Output Blooms Throughout the Summer
23 August 2018 by Helm Construction
Construction is flying high through this summer’s heatwave, with the recent IHS Markit/CIPS UK Construction Purchasing Managers’ Index® showing the biggest construction output increase since May 2017.
Output has been able to excel through the continued hot weather climbing to 55.8 in July, rising from 53.1 in June.
Helm Construction’s Finance Director, Adam Marks, was pleased to hear the positive news and has called on others in the industry to help maintain the surge in output. He explained “UK construction has been under the spotlight with recent negative events such as the Carillion collapse, and this turnaround paints a very positive future for the industry which is needed now more than ever.”
“This summer cannot be a one off, we must continue the growth. Helm are continually seeing output rise, and we strongly believe we are pulling our weight in the industry.”
