‘Super sewer’ pushes Laing O’Rourke and Ferrovial to top
Packages awarded for mammoth London scheme play a big part in contract hauls for this month’s top 10
The packages awarded for London’s “super sewer” have heavily influenced August’s top 10 contractors table, with Laing O’Rourke and Ferrovial Agroman jumping to equal first place on the back of a £746m joint venture win on the mega project.
The 50:50 joint venture between Laing O’Rourke and Ferrovial Agroman was confirmed in August as the winner of the construction package for the central section of the Thames Tideway Tunnel by delivery consortium Bazalgette, netting each contractor a £373m share.
