2019 Construction Survey Results

The 2019 BDO Construction Survey Report is here!

Our team of construction experts have recently released the results of the 2019 Construction Survey.  This is the second year of the annual survey and already the numbers of participants have more than doubled from last year. The survey is rapidly becoming recognised as an important resource that can provide meaningful insights into current trends and issues in the construction industry.

This year’s survey highlighted issues with low margins and decreasing forward work and the two-tier construction sector comprising experienced operators with robust businesses and management practices and fragile businesses with low margins and inexperienced operators is still very evident. This fragile group is highly vulnerable to the pressures and constraints operating within the industry.
