Have seen similar forecasts for Building Industry employment for Ireland too. The Irish were hoping that there will be enough jobs in the UK for them such as on the Olympic site & City office blocks etc.

Unfortunately these days all the building jobs are done by East Europeans and i hear that many of the proposed City skyscrapers are getting the job due to the credit crunch and the Investment Banks no longer needing the office space!

But we haven't got enough houses, we need 2 million houses every year just to meet demand. House prices will never come down unless they build, build, build!

You left out this bit:

However, just over one half of all construction bosses predict they will employ the same number, while less than a third will consider hiring more.

The survey also found a significant increase in vacancies in July, with 17 per cent of firms in the private sector reporting posts unfilled.

The figure was driven by a rise in jobs left vacant in construction, retail and services.

Positions left unfilled in the construction sector rose for the second consecutive month to 10 per cent, but in the industry sector fell by five points to 13 per cent, the lowest since June 2005.
