Live Surveys

Building Engineering Services Survey (ongoing)

In this section, you can view and complete ongoing and live surveys from ECA.

With many of our surveys, we hold a prize draw in which one respondent will win £200 of Amazon vouchers. 

The next quarterly Building Engineering Business Survey, sponsored by Scolmore, will open soon.

The results of this survey will help ECA and our partners to represent the interests of our members and the wider engineering services sector to the government and key stakeholders, and to raise the profile of the sector with decision-makers and the business press.
