Fareham-based Amiri Construction has posted record results and insists it is on course for the five-year targets it set itself on start-up.
The firm last week reported a £17.8 million turnover for the year ended 31 December 2008, up from £11m in 2007.
Company owners and directors Grahame Pettit and Kevin Lendon said the results significantly exceeded their expectations – particularly given the economic climate.
The figures set them on course for the £20m turnover they targeted for their fifth year of trading in 2009.
Managing director Grahame said: “Amiri has gone from strength-to-strength over the past four years. These latest results have far outweighed our predications and we are now well on the way to meeting our five-year turnover target.
“Our dedicated management team and staff have a wealth of knowledge and experience which, combined with a drive and passion for delivering quality buildings, gives us our competitive edge.”
In 2008, Amiri completed a £2.6m environmentally-friendly building for homeless people in Winchester, an £800,000 extension and alteration of a school for deaf children at Queen Alexandra Hospital, and a £3.1m design and build of 23,000 sq ft office building Phoenix House.
The firm has secured three contracts worth £4.6 million so far this year. These are a £2.5m extension and sports development at Poole High School, a £1.1m health centre in Chichester, and a £1m refurbishment project at Highbury College in Portsmouth.
Amiri employs 26 staff and works in a range of sectors across the south of England.
