CONSTRUCTION WORK DONE
In the December quarter 2009, the total value of building work done (in trend terms) in South Australia rose to $1,149.8m, an increase of 2.8% over the September quarter.
The trend estimate for the value of engineering work done has more than doubled (114.2%) between the December quarters of 2007 and 2009 ($628.7m to $1,346.9m). For the last two quarters, the value of engineering work done has exceeded the value of building work done. This upsurge in engineering construction is the focus of the feature article presented in this month's issue of SA Stats.
