Construction activity in Europe


The 2016 EUROCONSTRUCT report is highlighting a recovery of the European Construction after the financial and Euro crisis. Construction declined for six years since the peak in 2007 to the trough of 2013: over 25% in total. Contraction varied a lot by sectors: new housing construction fell the most, nearly 50% while renovation contracted the least at 6%. Construction volume in the EUROCONSTRUCT area was expected to grow by 3.5% in 2017. The strongest stimuli will once again come from residential construction.

This state of play is translated into UEPG 2016 Sustainable Development Indicators (SDIs).
