£38m Ministry of Defence college and Tyneside office block help support services firm beat off Carillion.
Interserve beat Carillion and regional contractor ROK to the top spot in the league table for March, thanks to deals worth more than £87m.

Its top projects were a £45m office development in Newcastle upon Tyne and a £38m contract for a Ministry of Defence college in Loughborough.

For the second month running, Bovis Lend Lease was conspicuous by its absence from the monthly charts, although it was still about £600m ahead of Skanska in the yearly league table.

The usual suspects (HOK International, the Department of Health and Davis Langdon & Everest) continued to dominate the charts in the architects, clients and QS tables. The only notable mover was architectural practice Watkins Gray, which sneaked up the table from 10th to seventh.
