The firms are bucking the trend of many in the sector struggling against the global credit crunch.

Builder Probuild Birmingham is the highest ranked firm from the industry, placed 5th overall, recording an average growth of 154 per cent per anum over the past four years.

Started by shop-fitter Anthony Sherlock as an odd jobs business for a handful of local customers, Probuild has now become a national builder with a £5m turnover.

The sector’s high-performers have come from across the UK, including Manchester regeneration specialist Modus Ventures, (26th) and Edinburgh based developer Applecross Properties in 32nd place.

The businesses are joined on the list by:

  • Property developer Wheatley (19th)
  • Contractor Bex (27th)
  • Contractor Delcon Construction (38th)
  • Housebuilder Scotia Homes (42nd)
  • Housing market information provider Hometrack Data Systems (68th)
  • Contractor Archer-Hoblin (89th)
