Civil Engineering (Industrial Report) - UK - June 2013

This report will help you to uncover opportunities and understand the key issues affecting your market. How? By giving you instant access to analysis and critical recommendations. It will also challenge routine thinking by providing fresh, new perspectives that energizes your thought processes.

The definitions used in this report for the civil engineering sector are those of the BERR which broadly defines the sector as constituting new infrastructure. There are a number of sectors that are defined within this sector comprising both public and privately financed projects.

The sectors include the following:

Water: Comprising the construction of reservoirs, purification plants, dams (except for hydro-electric schemes), aqueducts, wells, conduits, waterworks, pumping stations, water mains, hydraulic works, etc.

Sewerage: Comprising sewerage disposal works, the laying of sewers and service drains.

Electricity: Comprising building and civil engineering work for electrical undertakings such as power stations, dams and other works on hydro-electric schemes, sub-stations, laying of cables and the erection of overhead lines.

Gas: Comprising gas works, the laying of gas mains and gas storage facilities.

Communications: Comprising post offices, sorting offices, telephone exchanges, switching centres, cables etc..

Air: Comprising air terminals, runways, hangars, reception halls, radar installations, perimeter fencing etc, which are for use in connection with airfields.

Railways: Comprising permanent way, tunnels, bridges, cuttings, stations, engine sheds, etc, and electrification of both surface and underground railways

Harbours (including waterways): Comprising all works and buildings directly connected with harbours, wharves, docks, piers, jetties (including oil jetties), canals and water ways, dredging, sea walls, embankments and water defences.

Roads: Comprising roads, pavements, bridges, footpaths, lighting, tunnels, flyovers and fencing etc.

Construction Infrastructure: Construction statistics have, since 2010 separated construction infrastructure from the construction-based component element. MBD has included these statistics since they represent a stronger analysis, but data prior to this are subject to considerable estimation.

Public Work: Comprises of work on any public authority such as government departments, public utilities, nationalised industries, universities, the Post Office, new town corporations, housing association etc.

Private Work: Comprises work done for a private owner or organisation or for a private developer and includes work carried out by firms on their own initiative. It includes work where the private sector carries the majority of the risk/gain i.e. in principle all PFI contracts are considered private.
