The working day adjusted turnover of construction enterprises grew by 1.9 per cent year-on-year in September, according to Statistics Finland.

Among the industries, development was most favourable in civil engineering, where working day adjusted turnover grew by 4.0 per cent.

Measured by sales volume, this was the only growing industry. Among all industries, development was weakest in building construction.

The development of turnover of building construction has been subdued already for the last five months.

The turnover growth of 0.2 per cent in September was only marginally positive. The sales volume of building construction decreased by 3.6 per cent and pushed the sales volume of the entire construction industry down by 1.2 per cent.

The turnover in specialised construction activities has grown evenly for a long time already and in September the growth amounted to 3.2 per cent. However, the sales volume decreased slightly in enterprises in this industry.
