Barbour ABI

Barbour ABI is a leading provider of construction intelligence data and specialists in gathering, processing and delivering insight and intelligence on the built environment. With a team of in-house research professionals and a dedicated lead economist, we provide commercially relevant insight and unique analysis of trends and developments within the building and construction industry. Our data formed the basis of the GM Chamber’s 2014 Construction Sector Pipeline Analysis.

We are the chosen provider of industry data and indicators for Government bodies such as the Office for National Statistics, and we also publish the UK Government’s Construction and Infrastructure Pipelines, which outline future construction and infrastructure projects where public funding is agreed.

Our data reports on every planning application in the UK and tracks over 20,000 projects that do not require planning permission, which are then used by thousands of independent organisations, stretching across sectors such as construction, education and retail. From planning applications through to the subcontractors finishing on site, we provide key intelligence such as project details, start/end dates, materials required and contact information, making it simple for our clients to win more business.
