A continuing run of logistics and warehouse orders helped lift ISG to the top of the February contracts league rankings.

ISG bagged a 2m sq ft mega-shed near Wakefield for the Mountpark Group, accounting for most of its estimated £267m haul of work last month.

Hard on its heels in second place follows Vinci.  The firm scooped the biggest single order of the month with a £175m job to build a steel and concrete cased LNG containment tank the size of the Royal Albert Hall on the Isle of Grain for National Grid.

Contracts league data collected by construction information specialist Barbour ABI, kept Kier in pole position in the rolling 12-month work won rankings.

It is still being closely tracked by Balfour Beatty and Morgan Sindall, which this month switched order in second and third place.
