craneNEW-BUILDS are back in business all over Spain, as construction cranes return to the skyline after a long leave of absence.  

The number of licence applications grew by a quarter in the first four months of the year, with over 10,000 permits dished out by the Ministry of Development.

In total, new-build licence applications have been on the rise for nine months, the longest sustained increase since 2006.
