Morgan Sindall - Top of the Class

Morgan Sindall jumped to the top of the monthly league of contract wins in October and took pole position for the first time in the rolling 12 months’ total of work secured.

According to information specialist Glenigan, a trio of big project wins for the contractor tipped the tables. These wins included a £44m school in Tonyrefail for Rhonda Cynon Taff council, a £36.6m infrastructure package at Sighthill in Glasgow for the city council and a £23.6m multi-deck vehicle storage facility in Southampton for ABP.

The contractor is being chased by Kier, BAM and Laing O’Rourke bunched together over the year with just £20m worth of orders separating them. Over the year Morgan Sindall’s total was driven predominantly by a winning streak of building awards. Costain ranked as the country’s most successful civil engineering contractor based on work won over the last 12 months.

Among the other big contract awards last month Carillion signed a £92m deal for the Lincoln eastern bypass for Lincolnshire county council.
