Although the current revenue growth looks decent, the expansion phase may slow down considerably after the completion of existing large projects. Tight competition for large contracts, accompanied by rising construction input prices, may add to the risks. The availability of the workforce is likely to remain tight, which may lead to delays in construction schedules.
