It has been a record turnover year for GRAHAM with the construction firm announcing it passed the half billion pound mark in 2015/16.
The completion of an £81m student accommodation project for Salford University as well as installing a 44m span road bridge in Croydon for Network Rail and refurbishing the Clayton Square shopping centre in Liverpool, all helped the leading UK and Ireland construction and project investment company reach the milestone.
With group turnover passing through the half billion mark at £508 million for 2015/16, profit before taxation more than doubled to £17 million.
The net profit margin also increased from 1.4 per cent in 2014/15 to 3.4 per cent.
Executive chairman, Michael Graham said: “This is a significant milestone for GRAHAM and one which demonstrates how our group businesses continue to deliver exceptionally strong performances, across a range of sectors, throughout the UK and Ireland.
“GRAHAM is continually delivering landmark projects and achieving excellence in everything it does.
“None of this would be possible without the dedication and commitment of our 1,800 strong workforce, on which GRAHAM’s success is built. Knowing that they are trusted and their efforts valued, creates a high performance culture and it is no coincidence that GRAHAM has become known as one of the most attractive employers in the industry.
“By keeping business simple, being efficient and effective in all that we do and with a forward order book of almost £1bn, GRAHAM is well positioned to continue its growth from a position of strength.”
