Fast Track 100

This construction and civil-engineering firm serves southwest England and Wales, with projects including a £10m Asda store in Andover and a prize-winning eco-sustainable facility on Skomer Island in Pembrokeshire. Dawnus Construction has also installed road message signs in Wales and more recently expanded to take on projects such as a natural gas facility in Milford Haven. Founder Robert Jones and five colleagues set up the Swansea business with help from a business angel, and they plan to expand further in Bristol and the Midlands. Last year the company introduced a further learning scheme for graduate engineers. Sales have grown 61% a year from £16.4m in 2004 to £68.8m in 2007.
