Kier has kicked off the new year in celebratory style after securing the most contract wins in 2014, according to the latest top contractor league tables from Glenigan.
The contractor snatched the annual top spot from reigning titleholder Balfour Beatty after securing £1.92 billion of new work – just £46 million more than the second place sitters.
Interserve soared 26 places up the table to round off the top three following an exceptionally strong year. The Berkshire-based business has seen the value of its contract wins surge to £1.38 billion from £228 million in 2013.
The Department of Health now stands as the construction industry’s biggest client, awarding £2.34 billion of work in 2014. Last year’s top client Network Rail has dropped to fourth place, spending £1.008 billion less than in 2013.
Bouygues took pole position in the monthly top contractor table after landing £ 111.4 million of new work in December. The company jumped 11 places, propelled by a £70 million contract with Taylor Wimpey to build 150 flats on the site of North Westminster School, on Paddington Basin (Glenigan Project ID: 13018359).
Sir Robert McAlpine moved up nine places to hit the number two spot, buoyed by a £70 million job for Hammerson on the Watermark West Quay retail scheme in Southampton (Glenigan Project ID: 14161876).
Meanwhile, third-placed VINCI has secured three packages worth a total of £90.2 million on the £320 million Allerton Waste Recovery Park in Yorkshire for client AmeyCespa (Ferrovial) (Glenigan Project ID: 07537829).
Elsewhere in this month’s contractor leagues, Rider Levett Bucknall have gone straight in at the top of the quantity surveyor table after winning two deals worth £110 million. Hoare Lea climbed two places to top the consulting engineers table, while WYG leads the list of top 20 architects.
