Review of activity in the construction industry – first quarter 2015

June 9, 2015

Activity in the construction industry falling under Act R-20 saw a weak start to 2015, with a drop of 9% compared to last year, bringing the volume of work to 25.8 hours. Not since 2010 has this level of activity been seen. All construction sectors saw a reduction in volume of work during the first three months of the year; however, the greatest fallbacks took place in the industrial sector and the civil engineering and roadwork sector. The exceptionally cold winter may have stalled activity on construction sites during the first quarter of 2015.
