Chairman's overview

It is very pleasing to report another year of growth for Turner & Townsend. We have delivered record results while commodity prices dropped, investment in natural resources fell and the Chinese economy slowed. Our ability to grow in these circumstances can be attributed to our diverse business model. We serve multiple sectors and regions, helping to make us resilient.

Turnover in 2015–2016 rose from £380m to £409m. This is our sixth consecutive year of growth, which firmly establishes our agility in responding to challenges and opportunities in our markets. We have continued to take a long-term view on how we do business, serve our clients and deliver great outcomes to ensure sustainable success.

Natural resources

Our natural resources business delivered a solid performance during 2015–2016, in an environment that remained extremely challenging.

Chief Executive's report

Our achievements are a testament to the strength of our business and the value of our investment in our global capability. I am confident we are on the right path and the strategy we have put in place is paying off.

The built environment felt the impact of major macroeconomic events this year. However, despite significant volatility in natural resources markets, our ability to deliver growth has demonstrated the flexibility and resilience of our business model.
