Calverley said: "Our strength is developing smaller sites, brownfield conversions and an individual approach to developments. We believe we are in tune with our customers." He made the comments this week as the company announced its maiden interim results after it was formed from the merger of Galliford and Try in August.
The company posted pre-tax profit of £6.5m, excluding exceptional items, on turnover of £265.7m.

Exceptional costs were £3.3m following the merger and subsequent redundancy bill. The company expects to save £1.2m following the restructuring.
Calverley said the merger had been successful and the group was on track to meet the City's expectations of £15m pre-tax profit for the year.
