The Energy Recovery Facility contract for the North London Waste Authority at its site in Edmonton was the biggest contract win during the month, and comes against a backdrop of UK firms steering away from the risks of taking on design and build contracts for major energy from waste projects.
Mace ranked second last month, helped by a £300m job to build a London court and police complex next to Fleet Street.
Bam came in at third place in the monthly league on the strength of its Nuttall civil engineering arm securing a near £200m contract for the M54 to M6 Toll Link Road. project.
According to data compiled by construction information specialist Barbour ABI, Wates retained its lead at the head of the rolling 12-month league followed by BAM in second place.
Among the other big contract wins during the month, London’s commercial sector showed signs of coming back to life. Skanska secured a £235m contract to build a pioneering green office scheme in the central Victoria area.
The 470,000 sq ft speculative mixed-use commercial building will rise to 16-storeys with stepped upper floors.
Also in London, Laing O’Rourke confirmed sign-off of a £158m contract to deliver developer Derwent London’s next big mixed-use scheme in the capital’s West End.
Construction will begin in June on the 19-35 Baker Street project, which will rise to 10 storeys and offer a mix of commercial, retail, and 41 flats.
Mace also picked up a major student scheme worth £85m to build student accommodation at Palmerston Court in Battersea.
The multi-block scheme for Urbanest will provide for around 850 student beds.
London-based Curo Construction also pulled off a major coup securing the major infrastructure and build contract for the £200m Shinfield Film Studios complex near Reading after successfully delivering enabling works.
