THE Fareham office of building firm Morgan Sindall has helped its parent company record a good set of results.

In all for the year ending December 31, 2011, profit before tax for the global company was £45.3m, reduced from £51.3m,

But revenue was up by six per cent at £2,227m.

Projects which contributed to the results locally include a £9m contract to deliver a new six-floor complex extending the Eldon campus at the University of Portsmouth, providing a new gallery, social, learning and teaching spaces for the Faculty of Creative and Cultural Industries.

Morgan Sindall has also won a £3.79m contract to undertake extension and refurbishment works of the Children’s Services building at Oak Park Community Clinic in Havant.

And the company is currently on site constructing the second phase of the £9m Public Service Village for Havant Borough Council which features refurbishment to the offices due to complete by the summer of 2012.

The team based at the Solent Business Park, Segensworth, is also on site building a £4m multi-deck car facility for Associated British Ports in Southampton.

Graham Shennan, managing director of Morgan Sindall, said: ‘Morgan Sindall will focus on growing our market share and maintaining and improving our market-leading positions throughout 2012.

‘This will be underpinned by our proven track record, strong local presence and a relentless focus on both an exceptional customer experience and safety.

‘The depth and breadth of our skills as well as those of our supply chain and joint venture partners, combined with our ability to offer a fully integrated service on complex projects, will continue to allow us to capitalise on our strong pipeline of opportunities throughout the year.’
