Construction Price Index 3rd Quarter 2015

1.                 The Construction Price Index, which stood at 114.1 as at June 2015, increased by 0.1% or 0.1 point during the third quarter of 2015 to reach 114.2 in September 2015.
2.       On a monthly basis, the overall index remained at the same level in July, increased to 114.2 in August and remained almost unchanged in September 2015.
3.       The increase registered in August 2015, was a result of higher prices of paint (5.1%) and timber joinery (0.4%), partly offset by a decrease of 0.3% in the prices of steel bars.
4.       As a consequence of the above changes, the “Materials” sub index increased by 0.1% or 0.1 point in July 2015, 0.2% or 0.2 point in August 2015 and remained unchanged in September 2015 but no change was registered in the “Labour”, ‘Hire of plant” and “Transport” sub-indices.
