Passivhaus and modular construction specialist Beattie Passive has been included in J.P. Morgan Private Bank’s annual list of the UK’s Top 200 women-powered businesses.

J.P. Morgan Private Bank and research provider Beauhurst analysed 46,300 companies in the UK and found that 13,255 are either founded, led, owned or managed by women.

Beattie Passive was ranked at number 171 in the Top 200. 

The report recognises the contribution that female-led businesses make in terms of development and innovation, raising £5.75bn of private equity investment across 2,097 deals in 2022.

Beattie Passive says its inclusion underlines the high number of women-powered businesses in the east of England, which accounts for 26.7% of the total population by region.

Rosemary Beattie, a director at the Norwich-based firm, said: “Construction has traditionally been a male-dominated sector, but that’s changing and addressing the gender imbalance will have many benefits.

“A shortage of skilled workers is one of the biggest challenges facing our industry, so encouraging more women into construction will help to close the skills gap and widen the talent pool.

“There’s a very broad range of opportunities out there, so I would urge more women to consider a career in construction.”

Beattie Passive was recently named on LHC’s £1.2bn modern methods of construction (MMC) of New Homes (NH3) Framework.
