Covered in this report

The market value for the construction of schools, universities and hospitals rebounded in 2018 after three consecutive years of decline. The 5% increase in market value was driven by an increase in public sector activity in the health segment.


Building concerns over the quality and safety of the public estate in the education and health segments have incentivised a spurt of action, with regional authorities putting in place long-term funding programmes to restore the condition of the estate.


This has synergised with shifts in contractors’ attitudes, which increasingly display a commitment to sustainable procurement contracts, following the collapse of Carillion, and growing scrutiny over the government’s procurement standards.

Expert analysis from a specialist in the field

Written by Francesco Salau, a leading analyst in the B2B sector, her extensive knowledge delivers in-depth commentary and analysis to highlight current trends and add expert context to the numbers.

A near-decade long squeeze on public spending has significantly affected the condition of the education- and health-related estates, placing them under increasing public scrutiny. With the new government committed to increasing public expenditure to address this, activity in the sector is bound to increase the number of sustainable profit opportunities available for market leaders, facilitated through Regional Framework programmes" Francesco Salau
