Ian Lawson, chief executive officer, said the firm’s operating margins were also on the rise in line with management expectations.
This margin improvement came primarily from the internal efficiency benefits arising from the group’s operational improvement programme.
In a trading statement this morning, he said: “The market continues to present a good level of opportunities although as indicated in November’s interim results, slippage in potential timescales still remains a risk as clients scrutinise forecast overall project costs with caution.”
He said that the current order book would enable continued growth in both revenue and margins.
Lawson added that the firm’s Indian market environment remained somewhat challenging but the business continued to perform satisfactorily with a stable order book of £39m.
