Glenigan joins ONS accredited data provider network

Market research and intelligence provider Glenigan has been selected by the Office for National Statistics (ONS) as an official provider of UK and Northern Ireland construction data.

Supplying ONS with sub-national and sub-sector construction data, Glenigan will deploy its portfolio of data and research services to deliver exceptional results.

A team of over 150 professional researchers is positioned globally to offer a 24/7 service. Blending the physical and digital, the expertise is enhanced by a suite of AI-backed data mining tools which harnesses machine learning to provide comprehensive and up-to-date information.

Putting the scale of the work into context, they collate and crunch information on all new planning applications and decisions made across all planning authorities in the UK, as well as many separate unique and exclusive sources that are monitored daily.

The business makes over one million telephone calls and conducts around 250,000 hours of research every year to locate and engage key decision-makers on projects to garner the most robust and comprehensive database of every planning application and thousands of non-planning projects across the UK.

This gives Glenigan a comprehensive, contemporary picture of activity taking place currently or in the future, which can then be passed on to ONS.

Robert Davis, group content director at Glenigan, said: “Becoming an official source for ONS is a landmark achievement and testament to the experience and skill of our highly professional and highly connected research team. As we celebrate our 50th anniversary this year, it feels even more significant as we continue to deliver our ongoing goal of providing our customers with the highest-quality insight and intelligence available.”

Glenigan provides data to a number of government departments, including the Department for Business and Trade, the Scottish Government and the Department for Levelling up, Housing & Communities (DLUHC), and is already a member of the ONS Construction Statistics Steering Group.
