Australia’s Performance of Construction Index recorded overall growth of 1.4 points to 52.0 in July, marking the sector’s 18th consecutive month of growth. However, the sub-index for attached housing declined by 11.7 points to 36.7, and Peter Burn of the Australian Industry Group says the downturn in activity in the apartment sector could have implications for the broader construction industry if it is sustained.
