Construction giant Carillion has won three building projects worth £121 million – after completing deals worth more than £2 billion in a month.
The support services firm has been chosen for a £50 million project for Segro in Farnborough, a £45 million contract for the new Greater Manchester Police Authority headquarters and an extension to its existing contract for the Rolls Building in London worth £26 million.
It comes at the end of a busy month for the firm, in which more than £2.2 billion worth of deals had already been announced to investors.
Carillion chief executive, John McDonough said: “We are delighted to have secured these projects, in line with our strategy of focusing on high quality work for key customers.
“As a leader in sustainable solutions, we look forward to working with these customers to deliver first-class buildings, designed to high standards of sustainability.”
Wolverhampton-based Carillion will build four office buildings for Segro, measuring 22,000 sq m in total.
The six-storey Greater Manchester Police Authority headquarters will house 1,500 workers and is due for completion in early 2011.
The deals came just days after the firm announced it had landed a £1 billion contract to supply nationwide support for BT’s Openreach business.
It has also won a £500 million deal to build schools in the north east through the Government’s £55 billion Building Schools for the Future programme, a £116 million deal to build a Scottish prison and a £275 million contract to build a new Parliament building in Oman, in the past month.
The company produced a pre-tax profit of £53.6 million for the six months to the end of June 2008.
