Projects delivered during the 2018/19 financial year included Media City Tower Two and Clippers Quay in the northwest, as well as handing over sectional completion on its largest ever job at Canada Gardens, Wembley, London.

Managing director Gareth Simm said: “I am very proud of this set of results. We have come a long way since my Grandad invested £200 in setting up the company in the 1940s and I’m sure he would be proud of what we have achieved of late.
“He fostered his business on a philosophy to ‘build trusted relationships’, which is exactly the philosophy we live by today. That’s why our project handover score stands at 8.9 out of ten, 90% of our work is repeat business and 100% of our customers say they would work with us again. This is testament to our employees, so I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to them for their hard work and dedication.”
