Retail sector construction intelligence

Our dedicated retail sector research team track and report on every project taking place across the UK giving you valuable construction intelligence.

We can provide you with vital business support, data and insight to allow you to analyse your marketplace, keep track of your competitors and plan future developments, tracking all projects across the UK from corner shops to huge retail parks, from initial planning application until opening.

Our retail sector focused intelligence can help you in a number of ways:

  • deliver information about new developments in commercial and residential areas that could help you analyse and assess your future footfall potential
  • provide intelligence around future developments which may impact you, for example large residential land banks, with a timeline as to when they will take effect
  • report weekly planning application activity of companies you wish to track
  • allow competitor activity tracking, for example new builds, extensions, change of use etc.
  • tactically alert you about opening dates and consultation end dates of projects you are most interested in

Through our Economics team we can also offer a fully bespoke research and analysis service to produce reports working to your specific brief.
