The construction industry saw more than its fair share of turbulence in the last 12 months with the collapse of Carillion and subsequent Government reviews into the industry.  That said, last year saw the highest recorded value in construction work at £109,387million and a 6.2% rise in construction firms operating from the previous year.   Construction remains a key area for the UK economy.
