In November, the number of new construction projects completed declined by 0.4% as a result of a drop inhousing starts of nearly 5%, according to data provided by Office for National Statistics (ONS).
This decreased output was also attributable to a wetter-than-averagemore difficulty in working conditions, which in turn, contributed to the fall in work. As a result, the month remained flat in part because of a modest 0.6% increase in repair and maintenance work.
