Working day adjusted turnover in construction grew by 3.6 per cent from June 2018, but the sales volume remained on level with the previous year. Growth in construction was slowed down by the industry of building construction, in which the change in working day adjusted turnover from the previous year now has been close to zero for two months in a row. Measured by sales volume, building construction was the only declining industry in construction. Growth in construction was generated by enterprises in specialised construction and civil engineering.
