UK construction industry - Designing Buildings Wiki
Construction is a very diverse industry that includes activities ranging from mining, quarrying and forestry to the construction of infrastructure and buildings, the manufacture and supply of products, as well as maintenance, operation and disposal.

Construction output in the UK is more than £110 billion per annum and contributes 7% of GDP (ref Government Construction Strategy). Approximately a quarter of construction output is public sector and three quarters private sector.

There are three main sectors (ref Government Construction Strategy):

Commercial and social (approximately 45%)
Residential (approximately 40%).
Infrastructure (approximately 15%)

Approximately 60% of construction output is new build, whilst 40% is refurbishment and maintenance.

The industry accounts for approximately 3 million jobs, 10% of total UK employment (ref Construction 2025) and includes both manufacturing and services. According to the Department for Business Innovation and Skills, the industry is made up as follows:

Contracting, 2,030,000 jobs, 234,000 businesses.
Services, 580,000 jobs, 30,000 businesses.
Products, 310,000 jobs, 18,000 businesses.
