The firm takes the top spot in both Construction Enquirer's top 50 contractors for January and its top 100 contractors for the last year.

Among the major contracts it has picked up are a £100m new hospital in Ascot and a £30m new cancer hospital in Bath. In London, it won the £130m Blossom Street scheme near Spitalfields market and the £20m National College for Digital Skills in North London.
