Multidisciplinary consultant White Young Green shrugged off the impact of 11 September to post a 19.5% increase in profit.
The group's pre-tax profit rose from £4.1m to £4.9m for the year to 30 June, on turnover that went up £11m to £64m, a 20.75% jump.

Chief executive Richard Brayson said client confidence was hit after 11 September and this resulted in several projects being delayed. However, he added that order levels had recovered well, and that the firm's operating margin for the second half of the year was 9.6%.

WYG said its order book was at record levels and that it had long-term framework agreements worth £60m. WYG made five acquisitions in the year to 30 June and the group said the companies bought had been integrated.
