Housebuilders, building main contractors, civil engineering contractors, fit-out contractors, other subcontractors and “hard” FM/building services management companies have been included. Where firms are owned by international companies, then the data is from the relevant UK subsidiary business/businesses. Data for the sectoral breakdown of turnover has been included where supplied.
