Major contractors now have 73% of sites open
Contractor members of Build UK now have 73% of their sites open in England and Wales, up from 69% last week.
In an update released yesterday, Build UK said that over 80% of infrastructure and construction projects are now running, with members that include housing in their portfolios reporting that just over half of their housing sites (55%) are now open for business compared to 46% last week.
Productivity on infrastructure and construction sites is averaging 71% of normal levels, up from 67% last week.
But construction sites in London are proving more of a challenge, although output has improved from 56% to 63% in the last week.
