Scott Wilson this week reported a turnover of £111M for 2001. Last year saw it expand into the renewable energy market with the acquisition of Oceans Engineering.

A Hochtief Norwest Holst joint venture has this week won the final civil engineering contract to be awarded on the Channel Tunnel Rail Link (CTRL). The £120M contract is for construction of a 3.5km section of track between the southern portal of the Thames tunnel and the end of the first section of works at Pepper Hill, Kent. Also included are the shell of a new international station at Ebbsfleet Valley, a 500m cut and cover tunnel, roadworks and bridges.

Building maintenance spending has risen for the seventh year in succession to £47.1bn, according to figures published this week by British Maintenance Information.
