5 Popular Medium Sized Construction Companies UK 2023

Working in the business industry has always been an exciting experience for me. During my years-long career, I have encountered many clients and helped many friends and families by providing them with business consultancy based on my knowledge, experience, and research. Apart from my studies, I gained deep knowledge through client projects. The inspiration behind writing this article was also because of a client project.

Building Construction project

During one of our not-so-busy working days, a couple approached me to help them with this property renovation project. They wanted to seek some suggestions for their business. They have established their business, but due to their tight schedule, they want to surrogate their renovation works to a medium-sized construction company (A remarkable thought indeed). The couple had an impressive, strong mindset and wanted to gather information about their rising competitors in the UK.

We spoke for a while to understand the requirements, and I asked for some time to research and find the best for them. I then thought there are probably more big-sized companies out there who can outsource some small projects to medium-sized companies, and this way, both can grow.

I started my research, read some articles, did some fieldwork, and collected all the information about some of the best medium-sized construction companies in the UK for my clients and you, too.

List of best medium sized construction companies in the UK:

01. Beard Construction

In the initial time of my research, the first name that flashed in front of my eyes was Beard Construction Homepage – Beard (beardconstruction.co.uk).

Although it is a medium-sized company, its quality of work is commendable. Besides, the company is known in the industry for its sustainable practices.

While doing my research, I found a news published by BBC News How Britain’s oldest builder survived the recession – BBC News, according to which R Durtnell & Sons, the UK’s oldest construction company, was proud of its 1591 founding. Despite being one of the oldest in the nation, the company is counted among the medium-sized Construction Companies. Their services include new construction, restoration, and remodelling. What keeps them ahead in this competitive industry is their heritage project expertise. They were a part of several historical building restoration processes. Considering that aspect and my client’s requirements, I thought this one could be a wise choice.

03. Stepnell


Stepnell was my personal pick. I have worked with them, and I have to state that this brand excels in the competitive construction industry. Apart from showcasing top-notch, on-time project delivery, they are also known for providing quality and attention to detail in their projects. Some of the remarkable works done by Stepnell are the restoration project of the University of Birmingham’s Lapworth Museum of Geology and the building of Basingstoke’s St. John’s Primary School.
