Construction Enquirer News New football ground win helps send new work orders to record levels
Severfield has confirmed it has won the steel package at Everton’s new Bramley-Moore stadium.
Main contractor Laing O’Rourker started enabling works for the £500m stadium in July.
Severfield announced its win during an upbeat trading statement to the City today.
The company said: “The UK and Europe order book at 1 September includes a significant amount of new work which we have secured over recent months and now stands at a new record level of £376m (1 June 2021: £301m), of which £291m is for delivery over the next 12 months.
“This leaves the Group very well-positioned with a strong future workload for the remainder of the 2022 financial year and beyond.
“The growth in the order book has been driven by several significant project wins including the new stadium for Everton FC, two large and various smaller distribution facilities in the UK, reflecting a sector which continues to remain buoyant, new HS2 bridge packages and other bridge awards reflecting investment in infrastructure by Highways England and Network Rail.
“We continue to be very encouraged by the current level of tendering and pipeline activity across the Group.
“We remain well-positioned to take advantage of further significant opportunities, including in the industrial and distribution, transport infrastructure, commercial office (including in London), nuclear and data centre sectors, providing us with extra resilience and the ability to drive future profitable growth.”
