    02.09.2015 08:49 UK construction PMI rises to 57.3 in August

    Markit's and the Chartered Institute of Purchasing & Supply's construction purchasing managers' index (PMI) for the U.K. increased to 57.3 in August from 57.1 in July, missing expectations for a rise to 57.5.



    A reading above 50 indicates expansion in the construction sector.



    The increase was driven by a strong rise in business activity and employment.



    "UK construction companies remained on a reasonably strong growth footing in August, helped by a sustained recovery in both residential and commercial building activity. Meanwhile, there was another loss of momentum for civil engineering, which brought output growth within this sub-sector further below the multi-year highs seen in 2014," Senior Economist at Markit, Tim Moore, said.
