The Commercial Building Construction industry has been recovering from a tumultuous period during the economic downturn, when private investment in commercial and industrial premises slumped in response to adverse trends in company profitability, employment and household spending. In the public sector, the government's spending cuts affected demand for institutional buildings such as schools and hospitals. However, the Olympic Games and some landmark office developments provided some support for those operators based in or near London.
This industry includes firms that construct non-residential buildings to sell on their own account or on a fee or contract basis. The assembly and erection of prefabricated buildings is also covered. Sometimes, part or all of the construction process is outsourced.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
