Specialist rail and social housing fit-out and maintenance contractor Strategic Team Group has announced 30% growth in its turnover to 31 March 2011 to £47.2m.

The unaudited results for the firm included completion of 14,000 work orders over the last 12 months.

Strategic Team Group, which is headquartered in Castleford, West Yorkshire, specialises in the improvement of social and affordable housing stock, educational buildings, rail stations, and commercial offices, undertaking construction projects up to a value of £4m through to maintenance activities at £100.

Managing director, Andy Watson said: “2010 was a testing year for construction, so we are greatly encouraged by this set of results which has seen the business address the challenges of recession and dislocation in several markets, whilst continuing to invest in the business and to position for future growth.  

With such a robust performance in 2010 and order books already standing at £39m, we remain confident that for 2011, we will achieve a second year of double digit growth with turnover estimated to reach £53m.

Key projects for the firm have included:
