The definitions used in this report on the construction sector are from the ONS. The civil engineering sector has been excluded, but a detailed report on this sector is available separately from MBD (The UK Civil Engineering Market Development). A number of sectors defined within the construction sector comprise both publicly and privately financed projects.
Public work is for any public authority, such as government departments, public utilities, nationalised industries, universities, the Post Office, new town corporations, housing associations, etc. Private work is 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 private.
The sectors include the following:
- Public sector housing: comprising housing schemes, homes for the elderly, and the provision within housing sites of roads and services for utilities such as gas, water, electricity, sewage and drainage, which is financed either through local authorities or housing associations.
- Private sector housing: comprising all privately-owned buildings for residential use, such as houses, flats, maisonettes, bungalows, cottages, and the provision of services to new developments.

Expert analysis from a specialist in the field
Written by Terry Leggett, a leading analyst in the B2B - Industrial sector, his extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.
The construction market has a reputation for being highly cyclical, and the prospect of a Brexit-induced economic slowdown suggested difficulties ahead. However, the sector covers a wide range of markets and some are very buoyant, highlighting increasingly polarised activity.
