In 2014, construction volumes decreased. What can be considered the main keyword of the year in construction is the new financing period of the European Union (EU). Due to the new period, investments and public procurements have decreased. As a result of the low demand of the public sector and the reduced number of public procurements, builders focused more on private clients. Besides that, additional business opportunities are sought more increasingly, for example cofinancing of development projects and greater co-operation in building contracts between the public and private sectors. Private housing construction has been on the rise, but this has not covered the decrease in the number of state orders.
