Discover the highlights of the subsidiaries of VINCI Construction in Europe.

United Kingdom

 

The business line’s secondlargest market, the United Kingdom, accounted for a revenue of €2.1 billion, rising by almost 29%.

 

In building (27% of revenue), VINCI Construction reinforced its position in the healthcare sector (with new contracts for The Christie NHS Foundation Trust in Manchester and for the Pears Maudsley Centre for Children and Young People in London) and remained very active in the markets for residential properties, student residences and shopping centres – including the New Covent Garden Market (London).

 

Business in facilities management (20%), which takes over once building works are completed, grew on the back of multi-year contracts it obtained, renewed or extended, including the one it was awarded by the Ministry of Defence covering maintenance of its built estate across south-east England.

 

In civil engineering (18%), subsidiary Taylor Woodrow, which celebrated its 100th anniversary in 2021, benefited from the ramp-up of the HS2 project while pushing ahead with its infrastructure projects for the London Underground (Whitechapel and White Hart Lane stations) and the motorway network (the Smart Motorways programme). It is also working with other VINCI Construction entities to build a new waste-to-energy plant in London (EcoPark South).

 

In roadworks (35%), Eurovia UK won a new contract covering the national road network in the south of England. Maintenance and services subsidiary Ringway, which manages nearly 50,000 km of roads, was awarded a contract by Surrey County Council to deliver repairs and upgrades on 560 km of roads and 290 km of pedestrian pathways, for a duration of at least 10 years.

 

Congratulations to VINCI Construction UK, who won the 2021 award for #Construction Company of the Year! #FREDIEAwards2021 #FREDIEChampions.

Germany

 

Eurovia GmbH increased its revenue by 3.3% to €0.9 billion in markets buoyed by substantial public investment aimed at revamping road and urban infrastructure.

 

Business activity was spread across a large number of projects including renovation of the A52 motorway north of Düsseldorf (the longest orbital motorway in Europe) and the A61 in the Rhineland in the wake of heavy flooding, as well as the B464. The PPP that the Group was awarded for the new B247 federal road will also fuel business activity from 2022 onwards.

 

The main projects in other markets included redevelopment of the Bergedorf quarter in Hamburg, replacement of the Tegeler bridge in Berlin, runway extension and roadworksat the Düsseldorf Airport and renovation of the Steinhavelmühle lock in Fürstenberg.

 

With regard to innovative technologies for sustainable mobility, Eurovia GmbH – in partnership with ElectReon – set up a pilot inductive charging road product in Karlsruhe and trialled the Power Road®, the positive energy road solution.

Czech Republic and Slovakia

 

Business was buoyant (up 12.7% to €1 billion), in particular due to transport infrastructure modernisation projects financed by the European Union.

 

Eurovia CS handed over the last of a series of major upgrade projects on the D1 between Prague and Brno (covering a total of 68 km of motorway over eight years), and Eurovia SK completed construction of the southern and western Prešov bypass on the D1 motorway in Slovakia. The major PPP contract awarded to the Group and covering the renovation and extension of the D4 motorway in the Czech Republic will contribute to increasing business activity over the coming years.

 

In other markets, civil engineering subsidiary SMP CZ is building a system to cap flood peaks on the Hostivař dam in Prague and a sewage sludge treatment plant in Přerov. SMP CZ and construction subsidiary Průmstav are also renovating and extending the Marriott hotel in Prague.

Poland

 

Revenue amounted to €0.5 billion (down by 1.2%), as VINCI Construction continued to apply its selective order‑taking policy.

 

In building and civil engineering, Warbud completed construction of the Skyliner tower in Warsaw – one of the tallest in the country – and of the Toruń courthouse in central Poland. New contracts principally include the construction of a hospital in Poznań and three new buildings on a university campus in Kraków, the extension of an aluminium can factory in Lublin, and the refurbishment of a viaduct and road infrastructure in Kostrzyn nad Odrą, close to the border with Germany.

 

Eurovia Polska worked on urban development projects, entirely revamping roads and utility networks in Bielsko-Biała and Szczecin.
