Builders at their busiest since 2007

Yorkshire Post - Property - - PROPERTY -

BUILDERS’ work­loads across the UK have be­gun to in­crease for the first time since the re­ces­sion be­gan, ac­cord­ing to the Fed­er­a­tion of Mas­ter Builders (FMB).

The FMB says the net bal­ance for work­loads, ex­pected work­loads and en­quiries in the sec­ond quar­ter of 2013 was pos­i­tive across most of the UK for the first time since 2007.

How­ever, Fed­er­a­tion reg­is­tered con­cern about prospects in Scot­land – as the work­load north of the bor­der de­creased by 26 per cent.

An FMB spokesman said: “Af­ter one of the tough­est eco­nomic down­turns since the Sec­ond World War, it is en­cour­ag­ing to see con­di­tions may be eas­ing for Bri­tain’s be­lea­guered builders.”
