Actuate UK teams up with G&T consultancy to conduct Mechanical and Electrical sector survey

The G&T team will gather and analyse data to produce a rigorously researched evidence-based report. G&T is home to many highly experienced consultants who regularly provide market analysis across a wide range of sectors.

The report will include expert analysis identifying the latest trends affecting M&E services firms and will offer solutions to improve the business environment within the sector.

In this period of change for business and politics, this timely report will provide a benchmark for how the M&E sector is performing against other sectors in construction.

If you are a company in the M&E sector and you would like to take part in the survey, follow this link.
