DERBY, England - March 5, 2014 - PRLog -- High winds and flooding have caused all sorts of problems to the industry, especially due the disruptions in transport, site closures and new starts on projects are being delayed in affected areas of the UK. Even with the spell of bad weather, the industry continues to improve with new projects starts between December and February up by 10% on the same period last year.

Due to the recent disruptions it is predicted that later on into 2014 there will be a rise in the amount of repair and maintenance work performed due to the damage caused. Projects carried out on rail infrastructure are also predicted to rise in the South East and West of England to repair and strengthen existing lines.

Whilst the weather has been affecting some areas of the industry, other areas have continued to see the rapid rates of expansion that they did in the last 3 months of 2013. New project starts in the office sector have more than doubled compared to a year ago, with Industrial and leisure projects following close behind, both enjoying more than a 20% increase on this time last year.

Projects in sectors more dependent on public funding haven’t fared so well, with a fall of 43% on health projects started on this time last year, this followed a fall of 10% of new starts in the industry in 2013. With the majority of projects being started in this sector falling, the education sector continues a strong growth rising by more than 17% in 2013, however starts have slowed down in the New Year with amount of new starts the same as a year ago.

In whole the industry has seen a strong growth in the majority of sectors and areas across the country in the last three months which is predicted to impact positively on levels of activity in the amount of project starts in 2014.
