Construction Contracts League Table
18 Jun 15: Our third annual review of the financial health of the road building sector reveals a sustained improvement over the previous two years: profit margins and overall financial health have risen while gearing has fallen. But PFI contractors have seen a sharp reduction in their return on capital employed. Nick Hood reports
11 May 15: Our latest Company Watch report analyses the financial health of the larger players in another of construction’s specialisms: earthmoving and site preparation. A year after our first analysis of the earthmoving and site preparation sector, revenue is rising but profit margins are falling back and balance sheets are showing some signs of strain. Nick Hood reports.

Nick Hood reports.
