Building production in the Czech Republic is facing a realistic threat that it will fall back into stagnation in 2016. If negative scenarios materialise, the sector could lose 2-3%, the Association of Building Industry Entrepreneurs (SPS ČR) claims. This is due to the unresolved situation regarding the drawing of European funds, negative effect of legislation influencing investment construction and continuous decline of building contracts. Contracts for structural engineering projects for Czech construction industry dropped 50% in Q1 2016. Under the best scenario, the sector could grow 2-3% in 2016, as compared to the 7% growth in 2015, SPS ČR argues.
