Civil and structural engineering firm Sutcliffe has announced record figures for its financial year 2020-2021, with the company reporting a 9.5% uplift in turnover, representing five years of continuous growth.
The company, which has offices in Liverpool, Manchester, North Wales and London, says the figures come after a year of big project wins including Aintree University Hospital, Kingfisher Special School and the Ministry of Justice, with construction values of £75m with the total value of construction projects approaching £1bn.
With the above projects in sectors including extra care, residential and commercial, Sutcliffe has also placed a renewed focus on healthcare, having recently worked on Arrowe Park Hospital and Sandalwood Extra Care, further strengthening its reputation as experts in the sector.
Sutcliffe, which celebrated its 35th anniversary last October, has also continued to recognise its staff’s dedication and work throughout the pandemic by distributing 50% of its yearly profits directly back into the company. Sean Keyes, managing director, Sutcliffe, said: “2021 was a historic year for Sutcliffe, not only because of our 35th anniversary, but also because it was the year that our company evolved, grew and exceeded all expectations throughout a global pandemic - with our staff members going above and beyond to ensure we are now in a position for further growth in 2022.
“The levelling up agenda and increased spending in our region should ensure that the construction sector continues to grow this year too, with Sutcliffe now ready to capitalise on this, with everything in place for a strong year ahead.”
Further demonstrating its confidence for the future, Sutcliffe has also appointed two new Kickstarters, three new senior hires including structural engineer Graham Swanson and geo-environmental scientist Daniel Evans, as well as six internal promotions since September 2020, increasing its headcount by 9%.
