Northern Ireland's construction recovery is on mainland UK

By Michelle Rock

While news of a recovery in Northern Ireland's construction industry is always welcome, a new survey suggests that the properties being built by our local companies are actually on the mainland UK.

The latest survey of Northern Ireland property construction firms that looks at new orders, employment and exports, suggests that their was growth in the month of July, but that many firms are winning property construction work in Great Britain. That of course still is still an employment boost for Northern Ireland construction employers and employees, with a third of jobs having been lost since 2007 in the region. Unfortunately the recovery is not a sign of new property developments in Northern Ireland, though the property market is showing evidence of growing in strength month-on-month.
