The industrial and distribution shed specialist secured first place thanks to a £56m project in Hemel Hempstead for Prologis as well as a £44m warehouse scheme in Derby for Roxhill, according to construction intelligence provider Glenigan.

Lendlease claimed second place for November based on a single deal: the £200m redevelopment of British Land’s One Triton Square, expanding the building to offer 500,000 sq ft of office space alongside retail and leisure units.

It marked the contractor’s joint-highest ranking on record for the monthly table, having also clinched second in January this year.

Willmott Dixon took third spot for the month with a high-volume haul totalling £181.9m, just ahead of Carillion in fourth.

Elsewhere in November’s top 10, a £88m aircraft hangar scheme at Gatwick for Boeing was enough to give Sisk ninth, while a £90m research centre development saw Mace take 10th.

Other noteworthy wins over the period included Laing O’Rourke bagging a £86m deal for work at 33 Grosvenor Place, while Create scooped a £70m university halls scheme in Liverpool for Unite Students.

In the annual contractor league, Sir Robert McAlpine’s lead increased as Balfour Beatty slid back from second to third.

Kier took advantage of Morgan Sindall also losing ground, the latter being one of seven contractors for whom the £900m HS2 enabling works have now slipped outside their 12-month rolling total – the others being Bam, Costain, Ferrovial, Laing O’Rourke, Murphy and Skanska.

Galliford Try leapfrogged Vinci into sixth for the year, Bouygues climbed from 16th to 10th and Bam fell from ninth to 13th.
