How we compiled the list of the fastest growing companies

Welcome to CN’s review of the 100 fastest growing companies in construction – a unique insight into some of the industry’s most entrepreneurial firms.

In the list, you will see a huge a variety of company sizes and sectors, all with one thing in common – they have seen fantastic growth in profit over the past few years.

We haven’t plucked this list out of the air – the companies were selected from an analysis of
Companies House accounts filed up to the end of last financial year.

It is based on compound annual growth rates measured between 2003/04 and 2007/08. We analysed all companies defined by the Government as being involved in construction but excluded companies which were very small. Some of the companies are well-known but many are relatively small and unknown.

Thanks to my colleagues Alasdair Reisner, Nina Lovelace and Jennifer Palmer-Violet who worked on this project.

And thanks to B&CE and the National Federation of Builders who have both supported it.

Below are profiles of some the companies on the list. You can download the full list of profiles of the by clicking the resource box on the right hand side of the page.
