Royal BAM Group’s UK turnover in 2017 was €1,872m (2016: €2,106m) and profit was €39.7 (2016: €42.9).
Overall, the UK order book was flat, with the non-residential construction market slowing down, particularly in the London area, but improving for the BAM Nuttall civil engineering division.
At group level, Royal BAM Group made an adjusted pre-tax profit of €63.3m, which was down 38% on the previous year (2016: €102.7m) even before the inclusion of a €68m one-off charge to cover losses on its sea lock project at Ijmuiden in the Netherlands. There was also a negative impact from the collapse of a parking garage at Eindhoven Airport.
Group revenue was down 5% at €6,604m (2016: €6,976).
