In the first quarter of 2018, 5604 new non-residential buildings were completed (against 5679 with comparison to the same period of 2017) with useful floor area 3118 thous. m2 (i.e. by 10.9% less). Nearly 90% of the total area applied to five types of buildings (reservoirs, silos and warehouses; non-residential farm buildings; wholesale and retail trade buildings; industrial buildings and office buildings). Among them the largest demand of investors was observed for reservoirs, silos and warehouses (but their useful floor area decreased in comparison to the first quarter of 2017 by 22.0%), non-residential farm buildings (drop of  the useful floor area of 9.8%) and industrial buildings (drop of 37.5%). More demand for office buildings and wholesale and retail trade buildings was reflected in the growth of their useful floor area – by 67.0% and 45.6% respectively. Area of other types of non-residential buildings not mentioned above (among others hotels; garage buildings; sports halls) was by 6.7% smaller than a year before.
