May construction output increased by 1.5% according to the latest ONS figures, which is a record high in monthly-level terms (£15,053 million) since records began in January 2010

The increase in May construction output came from an increase in new work, despite a slight decline in repair and maintenance.

The main contributors to the monthly increase seen in May 2022 were private commercial new work and private new housing, which increased by 12.1% and 7.2% respectively.

The level of construction output in May 2022 was 4.1% above the February 2020 pre-pandemic level, whereas new work was slightly below the February 2020 level.
