Industrial and Built Environment Market Research Services

Industrial and Built EnvironmentLook no further than Redshift Research for the expertise that can navigate the complicated sales channels and supply chains involved in the construction industry.

With vast experience within the Industrial and Built Environment sector, including many white papers written in the UK manufacturing sphere, we understand that B2B decision making is typically more complicated than in consumer markets. Our proven methodologies will help your company jump through the hoops seamlessly.

Industrial Market Research Services encompass a number of unique complexities, which is why this sector needs a provider that can tackle the ins and outs effectively.


The need for improved service standards and sustainable solutions in the UK construction industry has seen Redshift work for a number of clients in this sector, from multinationals to family-run businesses.

Our industrial market research services have a proven track record in helping you to identify new sales opportunities, develop new products, improve customer retention and measure how your brand compares to rivals. We have a wealth of experience in both heavy-side materials (such as cement and masonry) and light-side products (such as heating systems and lighting).

What’s more, just like our clients in the UK construction sector, we take pride in delivering our projects on time and to budget.

Our experience in this sector includes surveying architects, trades people, builder’s merchants, facilities managers, health and safety officers, quantity surveyors, property developers and landlords.


With a dependency on B2B markets, we know it’s crucial for manufacturing firms to thoroughly understand their market. Whether you’re developing a new product or need to understand what the customer truly wants, Redshift Research has the expertise to deliver the insight you need to stay on top.

Our experience in this sector includes surveying architects, automotive industries (such as fork lift truck firms), OEMs, design engineers and CAD operators.

We are ready to help you

The insight we obtained and the resulting actions we defined will deliver enormous benefits to the business in both the short and longer term and so I’m extremely grateful to you both for your help.

The client care team are equally enthusiastic about the other meeting actions and we’ve started building and adapting processes to deliver them. It’ll be really interesting to see if the results from the next few surveys start to demonstrate the effectiveness of these new initiatives. Knowing future surveys will happen will help us to keep up the momentum for change and improvement.

It takes a leap of confidence to commission such research for a small business like ours but we’re so glad we did. The initial results, supported by your continued consultation have given us a decisive action plan that we are now certain will deliver tangible improvements in customer satisfaction as well as our revenues and profits. It really is a no-brainer!
