Firms top civils and non-civils charts respectively, with Balfour Beatty also faring well

A brace of major road contracts helped Costain top the overall contractor table for June, while a 76-contract winning spree helped Kier head the table excluding civils work.

Costain was boosted by two asset support contracts for Highways England each worth £125m, one covering Yorkshire and the Humberside and another covering Kent, Surrey, East Sussex and West Sussex.

Meanwhile, Kier’s haul of 76 contracts - more than double the number won by any of its rivals in June - worth a combined £225m - was enough for it to top the non-civils contractor table.

Balfour Beatty took the next rung in both tables, thanks in part to a £153m luxury residential job secured for developer Northacre and a £44m academy school in Aberdeen.

French contractor Bouygues comes in next, boosted by the contract to build Bristol’s £91m Populous-designed arena, having been named preferred bidder in February. The firm also picked up a £32m contract for maintenance and repair for London’s School of Oriental & African Studies.

A total of 33 contract wins worth £105m, including a £25m contract to build a new secondary school in Cardiff, pushed Willmott Dixon to fourth spot on the table excluding civils and fifth spot on the table with civils.

United Living picked up the next spot on both tables with four contracts, including the £20m refurbishment of Erno Goldfinger’s iconic 1960s brutalist Balfron Tower.

In the middle of the bunch on the tables is Morgan Sindall with 37 contracts worth £78.5m, followed on the table including civils by Danish outfit Burmeister & Wain, which is to build a heat and power plant in Sandwich, Kent for Estover Energy for £65m.
