Leading design and build contractor HG Construction Ltd has reported a record turnover of £243m in 2021

A 9.4% gross margin (10.2% in 2020) was recorded from business operations in 2021, with an additional contribution to the gross margin from the internal group of companies. 

HG Construction’s investment into its groundworks, Mechanical and Electrical (M & E), offsite manufacturing, plant and piling divisions has driven a lower overhead cost base, enabling it to manage risk and achieve cost certainty on projects, despite challenging market conditions.
