ABOUT THIS ISSUE
This publication provides an early indication of trends in building and engineering construction activity. The data are estimates based on a response rate of approximately 80% of the value of both building and engineering work done during the quarter. More comprehensive and updated results will be released in Building Activity, Australia (cat. no. 8752.0) on 20 January 2006 and in Engineering Construction Activity, Australia (cat. no. 8762.0) on 23 January 2006.
Sustained growth in the engineering construction sector, coupled with rises in building work in recent quarters, has driven total construction work done to record levels.
Engineering construction work done has increased for eighteen successive quarters.
Total building work increased for the third successive quarter after two quarters of decline.
Residential building work increased for the second successive quarter after three quarters of decline.
Non-residential work has risen in the last four quarters.
