In comparisons of Glenigan main contract award data, and figures made publicly available by our closest competitor, we have reported an average of 53% more project value over the last 4 years. This equates to an average of £33 billion more contract awards each year that only Glenigan customers are aware of.
Also, in comparisons of Glenigan’s top contractor league tables – showing the 50 best performing contractors each month - and the same information made publicly available by our closest competitor, we identified 35% more contracts awarded to the top contractors in 2021, worth almost £3 billion.
We are able to deliver so much more value due to the fact that we have a research team that is almost twice the size of our closest competitor. With a team of 130 highly-experienced and highly-connected researchers we are able to gather and qualify more data, more quickly than anyone else in the market.
Our researchers are positioned globally to ensure that we provide a 24-hour research process; with online research and AI data enrichment processes ongoing throughout the night, and additional qualitative telephone research carried out throughout the day.
Our project values are confirmed by our researchers wherever possible, but where values are estimated, we work with the Building Cost Information Service and other sources to ensure that our estimates are as accurate as possible.
We also have exclusive sources of data, such as The Builders Conference and the Considerate Constructors Scheme, enabling us to provide a significant number of project updates that are unavailable from any other provider.
Our data is trusted by the Government, the Office for National Statistics, trade bodies, trade press and mainstream media, and is used by main and specialist contractors, materials and product manufacturers and service providers to the industry.
