Infrastructure, homes boost construction

December 07, 2017

House building, engineering work and commercial construction activity increased in November

Engineering work, house building and a surge in commercial construction have helped boost overall construction activity in November despite a continuing decline in apartment building.

The Australian Industry Group and Housing Industry Association Performance of Construction Index (PCI) climbed 4.3 points to 57.5 points in November, staying above the 50-point level indicating expansion.

Ai Group head of policy Peter Burn said activity in the construction sector accelerated further in November as higher activity in both engineering construction and house building were backed up by a surge in commercial construction.
