The statement added: “Following the higher profit from certain project completions in first half of the prior year, we expect the profits in the first and second half of the current year to be more equally weighted.”

The UK order book of £210m as of September 1 remains in line with normal order book levels, which typically equate to eight to ten months of annualised revenue, Severfield said.

The group will announce its financial results for the half year ending September 30 2018 on Tuesday November 27 2018.
