Bouygues UK recorded a loss before tax of £41.8 million, compared to a £835,000 profit in FY2021.

Total income was a £36.1 million loss (FY2021: £1 million profit). 

“The loss for the year arose as a result of cost increases due to inflation, availability of labour, the conflict in Ukraine and the risk of post-completion liabilities arising from recent legislative changes relating to building safety,” said the Bouygues Group subsidiary. 

Its core projects in 2022 were schools, universities, student accommodation, hospitals, mixed-use and residential.  

It added: “Subcontractors continued to be impacted during the year in regard to delivery of services as a result of challenging market conditions. There was a small number of failures of subcontractors working for the company during the year. 

“The company continued supply chain and key supplier monitoring with regular checks being carried out with supply chain members.” 

During the financial period the company issued additional share capital of £47,000, creating a total equity value of £29,245 compared to £18,414 in the previous period.
