Best Regions for Construction Startups

1. North East

  • Regionally, the North East has the smallest percentage of construction companies (15%).
  • Just 6% of the region are employed in this sector – which is 2% lower than the national average.
  • But despite the North East’s construction industry being much smaller than other regions, it shares 12% of the area’s turnover across all industries.
  • From a wider outlook, it also contributes 3% to the British construction turnover – showing the area it has plenty of room to grow, too.

2. Scotland

  • Construction only accounts for 16% of the area’s turnover across all industries – which is 2% lower than the UK average.
  • More construction workers are also needed to address Scotland’s housing shortage, which means there is little competition.
  • Official figures from the Scottish government show that the economy grew by 1.3% in 2018, which proves that there is profit potential.
