Construction giant Carillion had multi-million pound contracts spanning the education, health and transport industries.

Here is a list of some of the largest recent public sector deals Carillion has signed.

:: In July 2017, Carillion announced that it was part of a partnership which had won two HS2 deals worth £1.4 billion.

The CEK joint venture – made up of Carillion, Eiffage and Kier – was commissioned to design and build a 50-mile section of the high speed railway roughly between Aylesbury and Royal Leamington Spa.

:: Carillion was selected by the Education and Skills Funding Agency in November 2017 to be part of its school building framework.

The framework allows education providers to access pre-selected contractors who can build new facilities.

At the time, Carillion wrote on its website: “These (the lots the company were selected for) are anticipated to be worth  around £2.64 billion in total over the period to 2021, with the Group one of nine contractors selected on the framework.”

:: Last November, the construction company announced that it had signed a contract with Network Rail to upgrade the existing track and infrastructure on the London to Corby route.

Carillion said the contract was expected to generate £62 million of revenue for them over the succeeding two-and-a-half years.

::  In 2014, Carillion said that it had agreed a joint venture with Sunderland City Council to redevelop key sites across the city.

The company said the contract “is potentially worth up to £800 million to Carillion over the 20-year life of the regeneration programme”.

:: Carillion was selected to build the Royal Liverpool University Hospital in 2013.

At the time of being awarded the contract, the company said the new building would be the “largest all single-bed hospital in the country” with 646 beds, including a 40-bed critical care unit, and 18 operating theatres.

A statement from Royal Liverpool and Broadgreen University Hospitals NHS Trust said the news of Carillion’s liquidation was “worrying”, but added that the hospital would be built, and that contingency plans were being implemented.
