Kier believes it has already bagged all the work it needs to hit its projected construction revenue for the year to 30 June 2015.
The Bedfordshire-based firm told the City this morning it had a pipeline of £2.6bn of “secured and probable work”.
It said this represented 100% of its anticipated revenue for its current financial year, which started on 1 July.
Kier recently secured a spot on the Highways Agency’s much-anticipated £5bn major roads framework, as well as a range of school, hospital and commercial schemes.
It said operating margins remained “in line with expectation” in the construction division, at about 2%.
Kier said its services division had an order book of £3.7bn along with potential contract extensions worth in excess of £2bn.
Since 1 July, the division has picked up major schemes including £180M of work for the Canal & River Trust and a £100M job for Bristol Water.
Overall, the firm said it “remains on course to meet the Board’s expectations for the current financial year”.
