East Midlands-based contractor Phoenix Brickwork has broken through the £25m turnover barrier after securing a raft of lucrative contracts across the UK.

Phoenix has won five major gigs in recent months, with the three largest – in Nottingham, York and Birmingham – totalling over £3.5m.

The company has offices in Pinxton and Northampton and provides brickwork, scaffolding and drywall services for a wide range of construction projects.

Its biggest recent contract win, worth £1.5m, saw the firm team up with Clegg Construction to work on a 188-bedroom, four-storey Premier Inn in Layerthorpe, York.

In Nottingham, Phoenix provided brickwork and internal blockwork for Galliford Try’s iQ student accommodation scheme, while a near £1m contract with Adlington Retirement Living saw the company provide brickwork and scaffolding services at the Wylde Green Retirement Apartments in Sutton Coldfield.

Further contracts include projects in Sheffield and Tamworth for Equans and GMI Construction.

Christian Watson, group chairman at Phoenix Brickwork, said: “These recent successes are built on the quality of our team and their work.

“Our relationships with main contractors, many of whom are long-term clients, are becoming ever stronger, as we continue to deliver projects on time and on budget, to extremely high standards. It is exciting to witness such strong growth in the first half of this year already, with more wins to follow. In addition, the further growth of Phoenix in wider geographical projects will only fuel more success.”
