Work has fully resumed at this Northern Irish firm’s civil engineering and construction sites across the UK, after being curtailed at the start of the pandemic.

Sales rose 21% to hit £513.4m last year under chief executive Philip Cheevers, 58, and current projects include Liverpool FC’s new £38m training facility.
