Using data from the Surrey Kent Sussex 250 listing, we’re taking a look at the top-performing SME construction companies in the South East - including what they do and how their revenue figures are looking.

The Business Magazine's Surrey Kent Sussex 250 listing celebrates the top companies by turnover in the region. The UK Government defines an SME as a company with fewer than 250 employees and a turnover of less than 50 million euro.

The SKS 250 listing is compiled by The Business Magazine and sponsored by business advisory firm BDO, HSBC Bank, investment banking firm Zeus, recruitment specialists CMA Recruitment and full-service law firm Irwin Mitchell.

To qualify for the listing, businesses need to be independent, privately-owned companies, headquartered within the region.
