The report said public investment had proved to be one of the key drivers behind the boom.

“For the year ahead, a strong housing construction upswing and a burst of public investment will be key growth engines,” the report said.

Construction work data revealed that new dwelling construction increased by 2.2 per cent and renovation work was up 4 per cent over the last quarter.

The report said the housing construction sector had officially turned a corner after contracting over the last three consecutive quarters.
