The turnover of specialised construction activities increased by 6.9 per cent and that of civil engineering by 1.1 per cent.

In 2016, the turnover of construction enterprises grew by 8.6 per cent from the previous year.

The sales volume of construction enterprises grew by 7.5 per cent in building construction and by 4.2 per cent in specialised construction in October to December. The growth in civil engineering amounted to 0.5 per cent.

The volume index of enterprises’ sales is calculated by removing the effect of price changes from the turnover index series.
