The Top 100 construction companies in the UK won £40.8 billion-worth of contracts last year.
Glenigan’s construction industry research shows that Kier replaced Morgan Sindall at the top of the table after winning £3.2 billion-worth of work in 2022.
Kier’s order book is more than 80% bigger than for 2021 after landing a swathe of major schemes. These range from a £460 million contract to dual a section of the A417 road in Gloucester (Project ID: 14432358) to a £400 million prison at Full Sutton in North Yorkshire (Project ID: 17106042).
Morgan Sindall sitting pretty
Morgan Sindall may have been dislodged by Kier from the peak of the Top 100, but the group still won more than £2.1 billion-worth of contracts during 2022. The group’s successes ranged from a £75 million science park in Kent for Trinity Investments (Project ID: 20347572) to a £67 million student accommodation for Oxford Brookes University (Project ID: 18368284).
Mace racing up
Mace was only on the fringes of the top 20 a year ago but has raced into third place in the latest Top 100 after signing up a string of major commercial schemes in London including the £450 million EDGE London Bridge office and retail development (Project ID: 19015864).
These deals have pushed the group’s order book up to £1.7 billion, which is 157% higher than at the end of 2021.
Warehouse work sends Winvic flying
Warehouse and industrial specialist Winvic also raced up the table and into the top 10 after a buoyant 12 months lifted the group’s order book by 38% to £1.4 billion to claim fourth place.
Major deals won by Winvic according to Glenigan’s market research include a £266 million industrial development on a former Honda factory in Swindon (Project ID: 21207562) and a £240 million logistics park in Northampton for SEGRO (Project ID: 21280277).
The UK arm of French giant Bouygues registered the biggest increase in orders – up 291% - to surge from 39th in 2021 to sixth.
