Turnover and profits falls at construction consultancy

The Turner & Townsend Contract Services division of global professional services firm Turner & Townsend has seen both profits and turnover fall during the financial year ending 30 April.

The Leeds-headquartered firm reported a turnover of £16.8m, which is a 17% drop from last year’s £20.7m. Pre-tax profits also fell from the £2.6m achieved in 2017, to £2.02m.

Despite these losses, the division did record an 18.4% increase in employees with the number of staff members rising by nine to 58.

Turner & Townsend is a programme management and construction consultancy, which helps organisations manage risks while maximising value and performance during the construction and operation of their assets.

As well as success across the UK, revenue growth was also particularly strong in Africa, the Americas and Australia.
