£1.6m fit-out deal at prestige Manchester offices
INTEGRATED property services and project delivery specialist Styles & Wood has been awarded a £1.6m fit-out contract at Manchester’s landmark office development One St Peter’s Square.
The firm’s projects division has been appointed to complete the landlord’s Category A works covering the eighth and ninth floor of the scheme, which will be occupied by DLA Piper.
The four-month contract will see the firm provide for an open-plan office area, create an opening for a staircase to connect DLA Piper’s two floors as well as complete mechanical and electrical installations across 45,000 sq ft of the 13-storey building.
The appointment is the latest in a string of commercial project wins the Altrincham-headquartered firm has secured this year, including the full strip-out and refurbishment of the 50,000sq ft, eight-storey Citygate Court.
Gideon Levene, head of projects at Styles & Wood, said: “Our appointment to One St Peter’s Square is a further milestone for us in the region’s commercial office market.
“There are a growing number of office fit-out opportunities across the UK’s key regional cities such as Manchester, Birmingham, Edinburgh and Leeds, due to the particularly active occupier market.
“Our integrated approach to project delivery through our network of offices positions us well to capitalise on this nation-wide trend.”
Styles & Wood Group posted a 3.2% year-on-year increase in turnover to £96.9m in its latest annual results in June, highlighting fit-out contracts for commercial developments as a growing source of work for the firm.
