Wembley loss pushes Bovis Lend Lease off yearly number one, despite £44.6m of work won last month.

Bovis Lend Lease has topped the August league for work won, despite slipping three places in the annual table.

The contractor, which won seven projects worth £44.6m last month, fell to fourth in the annual table because it lost the £320m Wembley contract – which had been included in the yearly figures – last week. This opened the door for HBG, which topped the annual chart with a total of 84 projects worth £781.1m.

Bovis Lend Lease’s monthly success was largely thanks to a £24m contract to build offices for technology giant Cisco Systems in Feltham.

In the architects’ yearly work table, Leslie Jones & Partners pushed Seymour Harris off the top with five projects worth £309.8m. Pearl Assurance headed the clients table with £300m worth of work let.
