  • The Office for National Statistics have significantly revised upwards their estimate of construction output in the first quarter of 2014. Output is now estimated to have grown by 1.5% in the quarter, up from the previous estimate of 0.6%. New build housing, commercial and industrial work drove expansion in the industry.
