Shaylor Group has announced strong increased demand for their fit-out expertise with a significant number of new contract wins throughout the UK.

Continuing their growing presence in the interiors sector, a new £12m contract with real estate developers Westrock has been secured to fit-out the iconic Merton Centre in central Bedford. The 52 week programme will see Shaylor Group’s dedicated team working closely with neighbouring businesses and the town council to ensure minimal disruption to trading and traffic whilst the scheme is being delivered.

Shaylor Group is also continuing its success in the London arena with two new significant fit-out appointments in Enfield and Barnet. The Enfield project will see Shaylor Group deliver the £6m fit-out of former office block Southbury House into 124 residential apartments for serial client Rooms & Studios. This new contract further strengthens Shaylor’s relationship with Rooms & Studios, making it their 3rd project together following the completion of similar projects in Croydon last year. Elsewhere in the city, Shaylor Group will be carrying out the £2.4m commercial fit-out of Barnet House, an 11 storey office block which houses the customer-facing services of the London Borough of Barnet council.

South of the capital, Shaylor Group has been appointed to carry out two fit-out projects in central Reading. The £4.5m Garrard House project will see Shaylor Group convert the centrally located building into 83 luxury apartments aimed at the professional city worker market. A similar project at St Giles House will see Shaylor Group carry out the £3m transformation of an existing office building into student accommodation in just 24 weeks for London based developers Bywater Capital Ltd.
