The essence of a country's construction sector at a glance

The building sector is in need of comparable, pan-European data to support a low-carbon economy.

Up until now, this information was incomplete and fragmented, hindering the uptake of new innovations and technologies. We deliver the missing pieces in the Building Market Briefs: condensed per country and based on a unique methodology.

The Building Market Briefs profile a single country building sector condensed into a single report. The content addresses the opportunities, the interests of stakeholders, costs and benefits of action to mitigate emissions — the primary driver of climate change. Also, the content is amplified with recommendations from local experts. As the methodologically is aligned, comparison between different European markets is easily made. Countries include:
