Surveyors see rise in building projects
THE struggling Yorkshire construction sector has been boosted by a rise in the number of new projects.
The latest Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors construction market survey says activity has slowly started to pick up.
During the second quarter of the year a net balance of 20 per cent more surveyors in the region reported rises in workloads, the most positive reading in over seven years.
This positivity is expected to continue over the coming year with 56 per cent more respondents predicting workloads will continue to rise rather than fall. Around 40 per cent of surveyors in Yorkshire anticipate increased profit margins during the next quarter.
