Taylor Woodrow this week announced group pre-tax profits up 48% to a record £108.8M for the half year and on turnover up 33% to £977.2M. Repositioning of the construction business to focus more on asset management for longer term clients boosted profits in this sector to £5.6M, compared to the £0.6M loss recorded in this period last year. The acquisition of Bryant in March also makes Taylor Woodrow the fourth largest UK house builder and increased its influence in the housing and property market.
