M Nicholas purchase is the latest attempt at expanding the infrastructure side of the business. They tried organic growth but that failed and then purchased May Gurney which had prepared itself for sale by getting a lovely looking order book but with negative margins. Now that this has failed they buy yet another small infrastructure company...This time M Nicholas who have never really been able to become a tier contractor. Hopefully if this one fails we won't have a regional.MD carry the can as was the case with the May Gurney disaster.

Construction slumps as businesses refuse to commit to big new projects HTTP://www.telegraph.co.uk/business/2017/08/02/construction-slumps-businesses-refuse-commit-big-new-projects/ Sharecast: Though the decline was only modest, the fall in levels of commercial work was at the fastest pace for a year, with a number of survey respondents cited delays in decision making by clients linked to worries about the economic outlook and heightened political uncertainty. Residential building remained the strongest performing category of activity in July, though saw the slowest growth for three months, with only civil engineering seeing an upturn in output growth in July. Supply chain pressures remained intense, reflecting low stocks among vendors, and materials prices continued to rise at pace. Howard Archer, chief economic advisor to the EY ITEM Club, said: "This is a disappointing survey across the board, pointing to the construction sector being hit by increased client caution amid heightened economic and political uncertainties."

'Crossrail contractors fined £1 million over worker's death' The three men had been working for Bam Ferrovial Kier (BFK), a venture made up of three companies, who later pleaded guilty to health and safety breaches at Southwark Crown Court. In the other incidents, Alex Vizitiu suffered head and hip injuries after being hit by pressurised water and concrete debris, while Terence Hughes suffered leg fractures having been struck by an excavator. On all three occasions, BFK was found to have failed to enforce exclusion zones which would have helped protect workers from foreseeable harm. The three contractors were fined £300,000 in relation to the death of Mr Tkacik, £600,000 and £165,000 over the injuries to Mr Hughes and Mr Vizitiu respectively. A Health and Safety Executive spokesperson said: “The omission to implement exclusion zones in a high hazard environment was a consistent failure in this case. "Had simple measures such as these been taken, all three incidents could have been prevented, and Renè Tkáčik may not have died." The new Crossrail railway line, which runs from Reading in Berkshire through central London, will open in December 2018.

Carillion could also try to woo rivals Balfour Beatty and Kier, who compete with Carillion on construction work, to launch rescue takeover bids. However, both have ruled out a deal for now. Mike van Dulken, analyst at Accendo Markets suggested that without serious financial intervention, the company could sink without a trace. Sunday Telegraph

Everyone gossips in the construction industry. The Mersey Gateway scheme is in particularly poor state with very significant losses being incurred by Kier. Are these losses being reported is a question which is worth asking. Add to that the disaster which was the May Gurney purchase and what we have here is a house of cards. Almost every contract on May Gurney was a disaster with extremely heavy losses on rail and highways. Kier bought a pup.

Nice find there phil.It does look a good fit.No RNS yet though. Good to see there is not much short interest here in the wake of CLLN.A good recent update but i guess this will tread water until the results.

Kier is losing very heavily on rail jobs. The Mersey gateway scheme is a disaster, could be as much as £70m loss. Highways schemes all in difficulty. Virtually every job in infrastructure is cash negative. I wonder what they are telling the market about these schemes.
