Latest figures from The Builders’ Conference show that the total value of new construction contracts awarded in the UK in September reached the highest monthly total for more than a year.

The construction trade association and market intelligence provider reported a total of £5.84bn in new contract awards in data derived from its unique league of contractors. The usual monthly benchmark threshold is £4bn.

These results show further evidence that, despite a slowdown in September, new orders by construction purchasing managers are on the rise again, with September’s numbers being the highest since August 2017 – although that month was itself a slight anomaly as £7bn of the £11.26 of new contracts awarded was for HS2.
