Sandy Adam said: “I am pleased to report another year of strong growth, reaching the milestone of £100m revenue for the first time in our history.

“This has largely been due to the tremendous work carried out by each and every one of our 500 staff who have built high-quality and desirable affordable and private homes. We are also proud to have reached the key milestone of building our 4000th home during the year.

“Looking ahead, we continue to drive controlled expansion, particularly with the affordable side of our business. Our target is to double turnover in affordable housing over the next two years.
