CN100 countdown: Balfour Beatty

Next month marks the publication of the 2016 CN100, our annual analysis of the state of the industry that ranks the top 100 contractors by turnover. We continue our countdown to this year’s edition with a look back at how 2015’s top 30 contractors have performed in previous CN100s.

Despite its well-publicised difficulties in recent years, Balfour Beatty has remained the top contractor by turnover for the past four editions of the CN100.

Turnover at the UK’s biggest contractor has declined sharply, dropping 23.5 per cent between its 2012 and 2015 CN100 entries.

Pre-tax profit at Balfour held firm in the 2012 and 2013 CN100s before falling dramatically over the past two publications.

It’s been a similar story for pre-tax margin, down from a respectable 3.5 per cent as per CN100 2012 to -4.2 per cent in last year’s.
