How will civil engineering do in 2011? Take part in our survey

How is the civil engineering industry feeling about 2011? Help NCE find out by completing our new Market Snapshot survey.

There was a mixed reaction to last month’s Comprehensive Spending Review and NCE is keen to gauge the confidence of the industry and offer insight into what to expect in the next 12 months.

To do that, we are surveying the 390 civil engineering firms listed in this year’s NCE Consultants File and Contractors File.

The survey can only be completed online, and the link to it has been emailed to the individuals holding the login details for their firm’s Consultants File and Contractors File online entry form.

If you are unsure who usually completes your entries, or think this person may have left the business, please email or

The survey is quick to complete as most questions are asking for trends not hard figures.

Responses needed by 30 November.

Results will be published in our special Infrastructure in 2011 supplement on 16 December.

    As an avid reader of the NCE for years i remember the times when quality was the buzz word across the industry, with highest and lowest tenders being discounted at early stages and quality progression of projects being constructed at reasonable prices (or so i thought). Today all we hear is cut cut a world of inovation etc it is going to be quality that suffers in the long run as companies try to remain afloat.
    The only people who seem to have large margins robust enough to take these sweeping cuts would be the bankers. They also seem to be the only ones who dont seem to be falling to the redundancy war cry? Have you ever seen an out of work city banker?
    Engineering in 2011 will be testing to say the least with graduates and chartered engineers alike struggling to remain employed.
    All this talk of growth etc...its just numbers. Look around you, how many people do each of us know who have lost their job and are struggling to find new employment?
