That was below the consensus forecast of 53.2 and more than six points below peaks scaled in May.Nonetheless, it was still the sixth consecutive reading above the 50-level which separates growth from contraction.Official data last month showed British construction output jumped 8.5 per cent between April and June, its best showing since 1982, but the more forward-looking PMI survey suggest this pace of growth will not be repeated.Employment within the UK construction sector decreased during August for a second consecutive month.“Those who are looking for signs of a slowdown will find plenty to worry about in this month’s construction PMI,” said CIPS chief executive David Noble.“The most disturbing is the marked slowdown in the residential sector as this is where much of the recent sector growth has come from. The slight increase in public sector activity disguises continuing uncertainty about the scale of spending cuts which we have yet to experience.” whatsapp Show Comments ▼ Read This Next’A Quiet Place Part II’ Sets Pandemic Record in Debut WeekendFamily ProofHiking Gadgets: Amazon Deals Perfect For Your Next AdventureFamily ProofIndian Spiced Vegetable Nuggets: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofAmazon roars for MGM’s lion, paying $8.45 billion for studio behind JamesFamily ProofTortilla Mango Cups: Recipes Worth CookingFamily ProofNew England Patriots’ Cam Newton says no extra motivation from Mac Jones’SportsnautBack on the Rails for Summer New York to New Orleans, Savannah and MiamiFamily ProofYoga for Beginners: 3 Different Types of Yoga You Should TryFamily ProofWhat to Know About ‘Loki’ Ahead of Disney+ Premier on June 9Family Proof Thursday 2 September 2010 4:55 amlast_img read more

Other stages in the joint venture process are also being put back. Timis said:?“Both parties have been working hard to complete the due diligence and finalise workable terms.”Numis Securities analyst Cailey Baxter said the news was a disappointment, but that deals with Chinese firms are often delayed.
