Carillion and Amec both gave upbeat trading statements to the City today ahead of the pair's interims later in the summer.
Carillion said that performance was 'firmly in line' with expectations and boasted an order book of around £5 billion. Its pipeline of probable orders has also increased substantially to some £2.7 billion.
Support services firm Amec also remained confident of further progress.
But it added that net debt would rise from £380 million to £400 million with last week's acquisition of nuclear services business NNC.
