Construction outlook and Media orientation

Right now, there is more need for quality market information than ever before. The uncertainty is also clearly felt in the construction sector, but effective policy is not made from gut instincts.Based on hard data and thorough market research, our Q1 report of the European Architectural Barometer provides insights into European building volumes for the coming year for the UK, Germany, France, Spain, Italy, the Netherlands, Belgium, and Poland.

Prediction of the development of construction volumes: what is the status of the European construction sector and what is coming at us?

In recent years, construction volume forecasts in the sector have generally been positive across Europe. In the current period, a degree of uncertainty has crept into the sector. Additionally, many countries had strict lockdown regulations that in many cases also affected the construction sector. That is why it is important to know how the coming year will play out. The Q1 report provides insight into the predictions of construction volumes for 2020 in all eight countries.

Through which channels can you best reach the architect?
