National regeneration-specialist, Keepmoat, was named Britain’s top contractor in September after winning £431m of work.
According to the latest figures from construction business intelligence unit, Glenigan, the top 50 contractors shared more than £2bn of work in total, with Doncaster-based Keepmoat accounting for almost a fifth of that amount.
Second placed Laing O’Rouke won £180m of work in the same period.
Keepmoat’s place at the top of the league table was secured after signing a £430m PFI housing regeneration contract for the Pendleton Together scheme in Salford.
The 30-year Pendleton Together scheme will lead to:
- The creation of 1,600 new energy efficient homes
- The improvement of more than 1,250 existing council-owned properties including Pendleton’s iconic tower blocks
- The creation of 500 new jobs and 24 small and medium business enterprises
- Skills training for 3,200 local people and 2,000 work experience opportunities
The Pendleton Together consortium comprises the social landlord Together Housing Group, Salford City Council and Keepmoat.
The Pendleton contract is Keepmoat’s second big PFI win of the summer after the firm won a £198m contract to refurbish 1,245 properties and create 388 new homes in Leeds in July.
Nick Ash, Regeneration Managing Director for Keepmoat, said: “As a business we were delighted to be named the top contractor for September after securing Keepmoat’s second major PFI win of the summer.
“This latest win demonstrates the strength of Keepmoat’s offering when bidding for large scale regeneration projects and establishes us as a business that can be trusted with schemes of national significance.
“The Pendleton contract is a landmark project for Keepmoat in the North West and is testament to the great reputation we have built up in the area over a long period of time.”
