Building-services-engineering company Ameon reports contracts worth £8 million in its home town of Blackpool plus £1.5 million in smaller, regional contracts. The bulk of the new business involves providing all M&E services for two major developments and refurbishment projects from the Government’s Building Schools for the Future Programme.

Work on Blackpool’s Highfield Humanities College is likely to run until 2014 and will include Ameon installing solar PV and solar thermal.

St Mary’s RC School, also in Blackpool, will benefit from a solar-thermal system for water heating and a 5 kW vertical-axis wind turbine.

The current contracts follow previous business gains of around £20 million in the last year and put the company on course for achieving its turnover forecast for 2011/2012.
