The firm secured £438.5m-worth of wins during the month according to construction intelligence provider Glenigan, giving Galliford its first monthly league triumph in exactly five years.

Its wins included a £128m contract to regenerate part of London’s Royal Docks area that will see its partnerships arm deliver 468 homes for Notting Hill Housing in phase two of the Great Eastern Quays scheme.

Morgan Sindall was second for the month thanks to a high-volume £281m haul, while Clugston took third with just two deals over the period, led by a £252m EfW waste recycling plant for Viridor near Bristol.

Other stand-out deals in April saw Vinci scoop a £165m contract for expansion at Keele University, while United Utilities picked a Farrans and Roadbridge joint venture was picked for a £85m pipeline scheme in Cumbria.

In the annual contractor league Morgan Sindall extended its lead over Laing O’Rourke but third-placed Kier lost ground on the top two.

Galliford’s strong month helped it leapfrog Bam into fourth – its highest position in the 12-month table since June 2016.

But the biggest mover was Balfour Beatty, which tumbled from sixth to 15th after several major deals fell outside the period covered.

ISG climbed two places to enter the top 10 in ninth, while Wates was another strong riser, up from 14th to 11th.

Buckingham meanwhile made its debut in the top 20, taking 19th place.
