Nigel's construction company builds executive residential housing in Western Australia. He wants to know his company's market share, and so accesses free Building Activity data on our website.

Nigel finds information about the value of work, and the number of dwelling units completed in Western Australia over the past year. By comparing his own business information to the published data, Nigel is able to estimate his company's market share to identify growth areas for his new promotional strategy.
