June Construction Update from the Department for Business & Trade

The Office for National Statistics published estimates of construction output for April 2024 this morning.

• Monthly construction output is estimated to have decreased by 1.4% in volume terms in April 2024, with
the monthly value in level terms at £14,940 million.
• The fall in monthly output came from decreases in both new work (1.9% fall), and repair and
maintenance (0.8% fall); anecdotal evidence from survey returns suggests effects of heavy rainfall and
strong winds affected output in April.
• At the sector level, seven out of the nine sectors saw a fall in April 2024; the main contributors to the
monthly decrease were private housing new work, and private housing repair and maintenance, which
fell by 4.4% and 2.5%, respectively.
• Construction output is estimated to have decreased by 2.2% in the three months to April 2024; this
came from decreases in both new work (2.8% fall), and repair and maintenance (1.4% fall) and is the
sixth consecutive fall in the three-monthly series.
