The growth of turnover in total construction was sustained by building construction, which increased by 9.7 per cent in the first quarter. The turnover of specialised construction activities went up by 2.3 per cent. The turnover of civil engineering fell by 13.4 per cent year-on-year, which slowed down the growth in the turnover of total construction.

The sales volume of construction enterprises in building construction grew 5.2 per cent year-on-year in January to March. In other industries the sales volume decreased: civil engineering by 14.3 per cent and specialised construction activities by 1.9 per cent from one year back.

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