Turnover of construction enterprises grew by 16,1 per cent in the June to August period

The sales volume of construction enterprises grew by 10.1 per cent in the June to August period when compared with the corresponding period of the year before.

The sales volume of building construction enterprises grew by 18.3 per cent in August and that of civil engineering construction enterprises decreased by 0.7 per cent when compared with August 2007.

The volume index of enterprises' sales is calculated by removing the effect of price changes from the turnover index series. Building costs rose by 4.2 per cent from August 2007 to August 2008.
