Balfour Beatty wins highest value of work in November

Balfour Beatty returned to the top of the contracts league table in November thanks to a £300m River Thames flood defence scheme.

The contractor is delivery partner on the project for CH2M Hill, who were awarded the Thames Estuary Asset Management Programme contract last month by the Environment Agency.

Kier maintained its position at the head of the 12-month contracts league table, with the firm’s total value of work won for the period nudging above £2bn.*

November’s top 50 contractors won deals totalling almost £2.5bn, a small decline on the combined value of work won in October.

The River Thames flood defence maintenance and improvement deal meant CH2M Hill leapt into the top five contractors for the month with just one contract awarded, while Balfour picked up nine other contracts.

BAM, in second, won 11 deals in November but was still some £50m short of Balfour’s total value of work won.

In choosing CH2M Hill for its £300m River Thames flood defence scheme, the Environment Agency comfortably topped November’s top 50 clients league table.

Government departments for education, health and transport occupied the second, third and fourth positions in the client table respectively, awarding £416m worth of work across 40 contracts.

The Department of Health comfortably stayed top of the annual client league table, having awarded deals worth £2.3bn over the last 12 months.

*An error in the data meant that Kier was incorrectly listed in second place for the 12-month contracts list in October.
