Big infrastructure wins have helped boost Galliford Try’s construction order book.
The hybrid firm this morning told the City it had £1.4bn of secured construction work as of 30 June.
This was up from £1.25bn a year earlier. Significant wins included being part of the consortium awarded the £745M Aberdeen bypass scheme.
Chief executive Greg Fitzgerald said: “We are pleased to have finished the year strongly and expect to deliver another record profit.
“With a solid balance sheet, minimal debt, a record landbank in housebuilding and excellent visibility of work in construction, we are starting the new financial year in a strong position, while recognising that challenges remain around the supply chain and converting outline planning permission into detailed consents.”
