The future looks bright for the construction industry as experts predict four more years of solid growth.
In 2015, construction output is forecast to grow a record 4.9 per cent due to a boost driven by a 10 per cent rise in commercial construction.
Growth in the industry is expected to last, with 22 per cent output growth up to 2019 due to an extra £27 billion of spending.
The increase is due to strong growth in private housing building and civil engineering.
David Lewis, Group Managing Director at Integra People, said: “The prospects for the construction industry are very positive and there is a lot of confidence in the marketplace.
“There are a lot of opportunities for construction workers to find work and this is only set to rise.
“We are encouraging young people to consider construction for a career as the increase in demand may lead to a skills shortage unless there is an influx of younger skilled workers entering the industry.”
