Top 12 construction stories of 2012

Construction News publishes its list of the 12 most read stories on the website throughout 2012.

  1. Jim’ll Mix It boss: ‘I’m keeping company name’
  2. Administrator in talks to sell parts of Doyle
  3. Rotary ‘for sale’ as parent firm Hastie enters administration
  4. In Pictures: The Shard set to dazzle London
  5. MJN Colston to file for administration
  6. Who’s who in the new Balfour Beatty
  7. Balfour Beatty names heads of new divisions
  8. Killby & Gayford goes into administration
  9. Balfour Beatty to close 35 offices as it cuts 650 UK jobs
  10. Burdens falls into administration
  11. Full list of 261 schools to benefit from £2bn Priority Schools revealed
  12. HMRC to ‘clarify’ landfill tax amid U-turn claims

Underlying themes emerging clearly from this list show the industry’s preocupation with adminstration during what’s been a turbulent year for construction.

Knowing what major contractors such as Balfour Beatty are up to proved important to our readers. Construction News remains the best place to find out about the work that is - and isn’t - happening in the industry, first.

Hopefully, this time next year we will see a marked change in tone of the year’s top stories. But first, the industry has to change too, if 2013 is to be the year when construction recovers from the difficulties of 2012.
