STRUCTURAL steelwork contractor, Billington Structures, has clinched three orders, worth £6 million in total, in one day.
The Barnsley firm, which designs, fabricates and erects structural steelwork for the construction industry, has been asked to supply and erect more than 2,000 tonnes of steelwork for three educational establishments in the south of England.
Billingtonn's factories in Barnsley and Bristol will be involved in fabricating the steelwork for the contracts which are due to be completed in March.
The latest orders reinforce Billington's strong track record in the educational sector and boost an already strong order book.
Over the past five years the company has won orders worth more than £35 million for educational projects, many of which were part of the Governments 'Building Schools for the Future' initiative to ensure that all secondary schools in England are rebuilt or remodelled.
Billington's managing director, Steve Fareham, said: "The education sector is one of the sectors that continues to offer growth.
"At Billington's we believe that our experience in developing structures for schools and colleges puts us in a st rong position to contribute to this sector for years to come."
Billington Structures employs more than 280 people and has more than 60 years experience of running projects from simple building frames to the most complex structures in excess of 6,000 tonnes.
The company says the latest orders, combined with its strong order book, give it considerable confidence in prospects for the coming year.
