ISG has topped Barbour ABI’s top 50 contractor league table for July 2019 with nine construction contracts worth £425m
In second place of the Barbour ABI top 50 contractor league table is Wates Construction, moving up eight places with seven contract awards at a total value of £383m. In third place sits Telford Homes Plc with a single project – The Nine Elms Parkside residential development in Wandsworth valued at £276m.
The latest edition of the top 50 contractor league table highlights the number and value of construction contracts awarded during July. This month shows that the combined value of construction contracts awarded to the top 50 was just shy of £4bn and a total of 188 projects.
The contactor with the highest number of projects was Kier for a second month running. In recent months, Kier has slipped from its top spot to lower positions down the table, and in July they were awarded 22 projects at a combined value of £136m. Kier still holds the top position in the rolling 12-month period with a total of 151 projects at a total value of £1.74bn. However, they are closely followed by ISG, with 60 projects valued at £1.45bn.
Tom Hall, chief economist at Barbour ABI, said: ‘This month we see the top contractor’s activity dominated by residential and commercial & retail projects. The highest value project for ISG was the London Waterloo Station retail and leisure development with a value of £200m, and Wates Construction were awarded a £300m project – Borough Yards commercial and office development in Southwark, London.”
