Nottinghamshire-based Deanestor, the furniture and fitout specialist, has won its second contract to provide bespoke kitchens for Grainger, the UK’s largest listed residential landlord.

The contract awarded by main contractor Bowmer + Kirkland is for the manufacture and installation of 261 high specification kitchens for a new £64m residential development in Milton Keynes.

Deanestor is manufacturing around 4,000 items of furniture for the kitchens.

Construction of two eight-storey blocks is underway on a brownfield site historically occupied by the YMCA. The developers are Peveril Securities with Mayforth and the architects are Pick Everard,

William Tonkinson, managing director of Deanestor, said: “We are very pleased to be working with Bowmer + Kirkland on our second Grainger build-to-rent scheme. This reaffirms our position as a leading specialist in the supply of contemporary yet long-lasting kitchen solutions to the private rental sector.

“We offer a complete furniture and fitting out service for exceptional quality kitchens and are working for some of the UK’s leading private residential developers and contractors on major schemes for both rent and market sale.”

Wayne Catterall, project manager at Bowmer + Kirkland, said: “We need the kitchens to be robust and durable for the long-term operation of the buildings, to deliver value for the client, and to contribute to an attractive living environment for residents. We are confident in Deanestor’s ability to achieve the quality, finish and detailing required for the project and to our programme.”

Deanestor is also providing high specification kitchens for a build-to-rent scheme for Grainger in Birmingham.
