About Laing O’Rourke
The company was founded by Ray O’Rourke in 1978. It was originally based in east London and was known as R. O’Rourke & Son.
In 2001 R. O’Rourke bought Laing Construction from John Laing plc for £1. Laing’s construction business had been making significant losses, in part due to additional costs on the Cardiff Millennium Stadium project. The name of the company was changed to Laing O’Rourke.
In 2004 the company acquired Crown House Engineering, a mechanical & electrical engineering business, from Carillion.
Laing O’Rourke went on to expand its operations in Australia in 2006 when it acquired Barclay Mowlem, also from Carillion.
On 11 January 2016 Laing O’Rourke announced that it had begun the formal sale process of selling its Australian business. This was a result of multiple unsolicited offers and a desire to invest more heavily in the company’s UK operations.
