Placing the spotlight on people, not just data

Barbour ABI are creating a monthly series documenting the best the construction industry has to offer. Not organisations, not data-led research, but the people, those people that are championing a cause or producing excellent work in a particular field of expertise.

As the market leader in construction intelligence, we are used to dealing with data. We track every single UK planning application of notable size from inception to completion of the project. But how we track them is using people: our local in-house construction intelligence experts who know and understand the intricacies of the built environment, are primed to ask the right probing questions and seek the detailed answers that help us form a brilliantly accurate picture of exactly what is going on in every sector, region and market in UK construction. This looks like over 1 million calls every single year and over 100,000 hours of research. But it’s the people that we are connecting with every single day that we want to highlight in our new report ‘Kudos in Construction’.

We hope that by celebrating the many people in UK construction that are making specific and measurable improvements in ten key areas, we will help to play even a small role in shaking off the dusty and now undeserved reputation of the industry and attract young talent in targeting a career in an industry set for widespread disruption in the coming years.

This month we take a look back at Kudos in Construction


This month we’ve paid tribute to those amazing people who are excelling at all levels of construction to make the industry a conducive, supportive, and inclusive environment to work in. From innovation, diversity, leadership, talent-seekers, sustainability and health and safety, our focus is to emphasise and appreciate the upcoming and experienced talent, those people that deserve their Kudos in Construction for being inspirational figures in the industry now and beyond.


This month Barbour ABI is paying tribute to those amazing people that are supporting construction with a passion for what they do – keep people safe. We’re giving kudos to those who are putting people first within the construction sector through health, safety and wellbeing practice at the forefront of all procedures and policies in the workplace.
