The total floor area of all planned buildings larger than in April

In May 2017, 23% more building permits were issued in Slovenia than in April; 22% more building permits were issued for residential buildings and 23% more for non-residential buildings. The total floor area of all planned buildings in May was almost 156,000 m2, which is 75% more than in April.

The floor area in May 2017 increased primarily due to the planned construction of larger non-residential buildings. Distinctly larger surface area was planned for industrial buildings and warehouses, where four times larger surface area was planned for industrial buildings mainly due to the expansion of a large production facility. The construction of larger buildings was also planned for traffic and communication buildings where four times larger surface area was also planned mainly due to a larger multi-storey parking structure.

Of building permits issued in May 2017, 99% were for new constructions and 1% for conversions. In comparison with April 2017, the number of building permits for new constructions increased by 22% and the planned floor area by 71% (mainly due to the construction of non-residential buildings).
