Laing O’Rourke lands top spot with £450m airport contract
Firm is number one in contractor league tables after winning job to transform Manchester’s Terminal Two
A mammoth £450m deal to transform Terminal Two at Manchester airport has launched Laing O’Rourke to the top of both contractor tables for August. The contractor also bagged a £100m contract to build a test centre for Jaguar Land Rover in Gaydon, Warwickshire, taking its tally to £550m last month.
In terms of total contract value, the haul means Laing O’Rourke is £350m ahead of second placed Kier, who took the runner-up spot on both tables after winning 52 contracts across the commercial, housing, public, civils and industrial sectors. It was also another good month for Scottish-based Robertson Group, which rounds out podium places on both tables with 10 jobs worth £108m.
