Styles&Wood has also seen success in the hospitality sector, having recently been appointed to deliver the fit-out of two new easyHotels in Manchester and Liverpool. This latest contract win will see the group:

In Liverpool, Styles&Wood will carry out the full internal strip-out and refurbishment of a vacant six-storey site on Castle Street, creating a 70-room hotel.
Tony Lenehan, CEO of Styles&Wood, commented: “The strength of our design and build offer, and in particular our team’s track record of delivering projects on time and on budget across a range of sectors, has seen us appointed to a number of high-profile developments across the UK. This is a further endorsement of our diversification strategy, which continues to bear fruit and is enabling the business to support clients across industries as diverse as healthcare and hospitality.
“While we are continuing to win work and expand our portfolio in a variety of markets, the commercial fit-out sector also remains an important source of work for the business. The Manchester market in particular has witnessed a surge in activity in recent months, and as demand for premium space remains high, particularly across the North West, we are expecting this is trend to continue.”
Styles&Wood posted an 18 per cent year-on-year increase in revenue to £115m in its latest annual results for the year ending 31 December 2015, highlighting the success of the group’s diversification strategy as the foundation of its success.
