Leading construction companies in the United Kingdom (UK) as of 2017, by turnover (in million GBP)

Turnover of construction companies in the United Kingdom (UK) as of 2017 Balfour Beatty was the largest construction company in the United Kingdom. In 2017, the heavy construction contractor generated a turnover of 8.2 billion British pounds. This was nearly twice the amount made by the second entry, Kier Group in their 2017 fiscal year. There are currently three UK based construction companies with an annual turnover exceeding three billion British pounds.

Balfour Beatty at a glance

Despite still leading the list of most profitable companies in the industry, Balfour Beatty saw its underlying revenue decline by nearly 30 percent between 2011 and 2018. In 2018, its revenue fell below eight billion British pounds for the first time since the beginning of the reporting period. As seen by the liquidation of another construction giant, Carillion, the current business climate proved to be difficult for firms within the industry.

Contractors worldwide

Globally, infrastructure and building construction was firmly in the hands of China. Four of the leading five contractors were from the second largest economy, with the first three entries making over 100 billion U.S. dollars in revenues each.
