Morgan Sindall won the £102m contract as part of the redevelopment of Bournemouth’s former Winter Gardens theatre site, giving it a total haul for the month of £243.6m across 19 projects.
Balfour Beatty was second in May’s table with seven deals worth a combined £179.6m, according to construction intelligence provider Glenigan.
Balfour’s total included a £130m project to create a lorry park in Kent for Highways England and the Department for Transport. This scheme follows on from the contractor’s previous work creating a temporary solution to the queues of lorries seen last year as part of Operation Stack.
Other notable deals finalised during May included fourth-placed ISG’s £40m work on a library in Wokingham for the borough council and fifth-placed Laing O’Rourke’s £76.2m residential scheme for Imperial College London.
In the annual contractor table Kier clung on to the top spot despite a fall in its haul that left second-placed Galliford Try within touching distance.
Carillion and Balfour Beatty moved up a place each to sit fourth and fifth respectively, after Laing O’Rourke plunged 10 places to 14th due to several major wins falling outside the period covered, including its deal on Swansea Bay’s tidal lagoon.
