Researching construction and built environment markets
Marketwise Strategies works with a wide range of organisations in the built environment and has developed a strong portfolio of projects. Our clients include:
- Architectural practices
- Professional associations
- Central government
- National and multinational organisations, requiring major studies within the sector
- Companies providing or developing products and services (e.g. information, education, training and software for architects, surveyors and engineers).
Within our research, we regularly consult with architects, building surveyors, quantity surveyors, engineers, contractors, building product manufacturers – and their clients. We also speak frequently with sector experts, in professional institutes, trade associations, builders merchants, retailers and advisory organisations.
Through this extensive involvement we have a good understanding of the key issues within the sector, including for example Building Information Modelling (BIM) and its implications for the design and specification processes. We are also well versed in other macro factors, such as the drive for improved environmental sustainability over the lifetime of a building, and the increased adoption of Modern Methods of Construction (MMC).
How we help
We support our built environment clients in:
- Developing and refining new products and services – from sustainable materials to software for CPD
- Evaluating, targeting and entering new markets
- Measuring and assessing customer satisfaction
- Getting closer to stakeholders
- Reviewing and enhancing their brands.
We have particular experience in research around building specification and its relationship with other aspects of building design and construction. Linking with our experience in energy and environment, we also take a keen interest in environmentally friendly approaches to construction, from renewable energy systems to recycled materials.
