2016 key findings


All the tables were compiled using data supplied by the companies themselves. This year, Cushman & Wakefield elected not to participate, following its merger with DTZ. Bilfinger GVA declined to give European and global revenue figures, saying it was not in a position to do so.

  • CBRE’s revenue figure does not include the September 2015 acquisition of Johnson Controls’ Global Workplace Solutions
  • Altus Group’s reported revenue was CAN$370m in 2014 and CAN$416m in 2015 but due to currency fluctuations, the conversion to £ shows a fall in revenue.
  • Savills’ growth is understated by £12m due to changes to the way revenue is classified.
