An update from trade body Build UK on Wednesday revealed the number of operational sites for its contractor members.
Build UK’s membership includes most of the industry’s biggest names like Balfour Beatty, Laing O’Rourke, Kier, McAlpine, Skanska, Bouygues, Bam, Vinci, Wates, Mace and Morgan Sindall.
The trade body said: “Build UK Contractor members are continuing to reopen sites and reported this week that almost 70% of their sites are open in England and Wales.
“The majority are construction (81%) and infrastructure (78%) sites, with members that include housing in their portfolios confirming that less than half of their housing sites (46%) are open for business.
“Productivity on construction and infrastructure sites is averaging 67%, with London construction sites proving to be a particular challenge at just 56% output being achieved.”
