The company attributes a continuing firm workload primarily to the long term nature of the projects it carries out in infrastructure development, enhancement and replacement where budgetary planning extends years into the future.
It has won new or extended orders for a significant number of such major projects in the last year it adds, with a strong order book including schemes such as Manchester Waste, East London line and London Gateway Port in the UK. A new £9.8M consutlancy value contract for above ground design on the Crossrail project has just been awarded by Network Rail.
The international contribution is growing in significance says the firm. Orders include national highway projects in India and Sri Lanka, power porjects in Greece, Qatar, Indonesia and Pakistan, and the Grand Mosque in Bahrain.
The company had organic growth of over 10%, and is also integrating activities from three acquistions: Benaim, Terence Lee Partnership and Strategic Leisure.
