Osborne has doubled its growth in London in the past 12 months and is set for more than £100m-worth of work in the capital.
The work is spread across the commercial, education, housing and retail sectors and involves work for new customers.
Osborne chief executive David Fison told Construction News that following the firm’s rebrand in June 2014, it was eyeing up more work in central London in the £5m to £30m bracket.
He said the contractor had a £100m portfolio of upcoming work in the capital.
“If I look at London, which is an area we’ve always done business but went down quite a long way during the recession, we’ve currently got more than £100m-worth of work in second-stage negotiation.
“All of that has come about because suddenly customers have a clearer idea of what we do and, particularly on some of the tricky jobs, they say we want someone who is flexible.”
Last October, Osborne was awarded the £19m contract to redevelop Mercers’ Yard in Covent Garden (pictured).
Mr Fison added that there were “more jobs than [Osborne] can bid for” and that it would be cautious about how much work it takes on.
“We’d far prefer to take a little less work on and deliver it properly and build our reputation,” he said.
