Regional Construction: Get a piece of the action

Most people’s idea of construction activity is of London and the South-east in relatively robust health; the rest of the country dying on its feet. But in Building’s Regional Construction Trends White Paper, we find the true picture is more complex than that.

So where are the hidden opportunities, and what trends are emerging from construction businesses in their strategies towards chasing this work?

With detailed analysis of extensive data, feedback from 50 leading construction clients and survey results from 900 construction firms, we can reveal not only how your competitors are changing their business strategies but how you can best target your resources now and in the future.

The research analyses six regions across the UK – London and the South-east, Midlands and East Anglia, Northern England, South-west England, Scotland and Wales.

You will get the market insight you need to:
  • Enhance your understanding of regional opportunities through exclusive data on UK construction spending trends over the past two years split into six regions – also including breakdowns by market sector within each region, provided by Barbour ABI
  • Find out which sectors are growing and which are declining in each UK region through our in-depth analysis of contract awards data
  • Understand how your rivals and potential partners are changing their regional business strategies through findings from an extensive survey of more than 900 professionals working for contractors, consultants and architects
  • Benchmark yourself against your competitors with exclusive contract award rankings showing which contractors, architects and consultants have won the most work in each region over the past year
  • Understand what clients are looking for from construction firms on regional projects based on feedback from more than 50 leading clients
  • Case studies on the approaches construction firms including Balfour Beatty and Aecom are taking to regional markets, based on interviews with senior managers
  • In-depth interviews with construction clients Co-Op, John Lewis and Prologis over their priorities in regional construction
