Open Data Albania conducted a research regarding the number and basic capital of the joint-stock companies operating at the Construction sector in Albania. The indicators data were obtained from the National Registration Center (NRC) and the research is carried out based on the official historical extracts of June 2014.

From the historical extracts of these registered companies, it results that in the Construction sector there are 57 joint-stock companies operating, with a value of capital of 47.54 million euros. This sector constitutes only 1.6% of the total capital of all joint-stock companies registered at the NRC system in Albania.

The Construction sector itself is divided into the subsector of Construction of Real Estate – Residential Housing, and the subsector of Public constructions; works of art, highways etc. Companies which are focused on public constructions have declared in their field of activities that they offer residential building, too. Therefore, in the first subsector, there were taken into consideration only those joint-stock companies which in their field of activity have not declared to perform public constructions.
