Top Ten Construction Companies UK 2019

The Top Ten Construction Companies UK 2019 are listed below. This article is about how the top ten uk construction companies use social media and how effective is it on their financial results.

Top ten construction companies social media report 2019

On the 20th of February 2019, we analysed the top ten construction companies for their social media habits to see who was doing what.

The top ten construction where listed from their 2018 turnover and they are:

  • Balfour Beatty Plc
  • Kier Group Plc
  • Interserve Plc
  • Galliford Try Plc
  • Morgan Sindall
  • Amey UK Plc
  • Keller Group Plc
  • Mace Ltd
  • Laing O’Rourke Plc
  • Skanska UK Plc

The social media channels we looked at where:

  • Facebook
  • Twitter
  • YouTube
  • Instagram
  • LinkedIn

We also looked at their social share score to see who’s content was being shared the most. This analysis is a snapshot in time but gives some insight.


Top construction company social media trends


All companies had a significant presence on LinkedIn with the greatest following being Skanska with 325,175 followers.

All companies had a significant presence on LinkedIn with the greatest following being Skanska with 325,175 followers.

Construction has a significant presence on LinkedIn. The core of construction marketing is relationships. LinkedIn is an ideal platform to connect and build business relationships. There are lots of consultants training construction companies on how to use LinkedIn to build relationships.

If you have the right strategy, LinkedIn is a powerful marketing tool.


Skanska also had the most Facebook likes. Only five companies had a Facebook presence. Is there a lost opportunity for construction companies to tap into Facebook ads to communicate brand and marketing messages?


All ten companies tweet. Balfour Beatty has the greatest following and social shares.


Keller has the most considerable following on YouTube showing off plant and projects.

Video is important as a social media marketing tool.

The audiences are not as large as other channels, but the trend is growing.


Our top ten construction companies do not see Instagram as a channel to deploy marketing from. Again is this a missed opportunity as Instagram is linking to other social media channels and delivers a punch.

Again Balfour Beatty is the trailblazers on Instagram.

General Observations

Balfour Beatty, the number one contractor for turnover and profit, has a significant social media presence with the largest social Shares.

Interestingly Morgan Sindall the fifth largest company with the fourth most substantial profit does not have a high social media presence. Their social share score was 6 with no Facebook and the smallest following on LinkedIn.

Galliford Try has a similar low-level social media strategy but is the fourth largest company with the sixth most substantial profit.

Are construction companies wasting resources on social media marketing?

Has Balfour Beatty got it right?

Let me know your thoughts.
