CONSTRUCTION WORK DONE
In the June quarter 2010, the total value of building work done (in trend terms) in South Australia rose to $1,297.9m, an increase of 4.2% over the March quarter 2010.
Between the December quarters 2007 and 2009, the trend estimate for the value of engineering work done rose sharply ($627.5m to $1,268.0m). Since this time, the value of engineering work has fallen to be $1,241.6m in the June quarter 2010. The $14.6m drop over the last quarter sees the value of engineering work done fall below the value of building work for the first time since the March quarter 2009.
The upsurge in engineering construction between the December quarters 2007 and 2009 was the focus of the feature article presented in the April 2010 issue of SA Stats.
