The company also increased its final dividend substantially from 3c a share to 5.2c.
This meant a doubling of the full year dividend to 7.70c per share.
MDM also said it had secured a pipeline of projects sufficient to improve the firm's numbers further in its 2013 results.
"I believe that MDM has now achieved the critical mass required in terms of skilled resources, as well as the correct mix of projects to sustain gradual organic growth and be highly profitable," said Chief Executive Martin Smith.
"Looking ahead we plan to maintain our culture of keeping close to clients, build fit-for-purpose plants and making sure we deliver on our promises."
He attributed the company's success to senior executive's hands-on management efforts, minimising costs and focusing on efficiency.
