National principal contractor Shaylor Group has announced a consistent stream of new public sector funded projects nationwide. The company, currently delivering £60m of publicly funded schemes in a forward order book of £200m, has credited the progression of the Government’s plans for leaving the European Union with easing sector uncertainty.
In the heritage sector Shaylor Group is on site at Chester Farm delivering a multi-million pound restoration project for Northamptonshire County Council. The site of a Roman walled town and traditional farm buildings dating back to the 17th Century, Shaylor Group will transform the area into a major education and visitor destination providing interpretation, conference, education and training facilities, a café and county-wide archaeological resource centre. The 18 month project is being funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund in addition to the Council.
Shaylor Group has also seen significant spending in the Justice and Custodial sector. The company currently has a number of projects on site for the Ministry of Justice (MoJ) covering prisons, court facilities and probation service premises throughout the UK. Shaylor Group will begin delivery of a further 9 projects for the MoJ before July, awarded through their place on the Strategic Alliance Agreement.
In the Midlands Region, Shaylor Group will begin the complex refurbishment of Wolverhampton’s Grade II Listed Civic and Wulfrun Halls on behalf of the City Council. The project will see major changes made to the Civic Hall and Wulfrun Hall in phases and draws upon Shaylor Group’s outstanding reputation in delivering world class performance facilities.
Shaylor Group Chief Executive Officer Stephen Shaylor commented “Shaylor Group has an enviable portfolio of outstanding public sector projects, which has obviously contributed in securing such a healthy order book in this arena. In addition to drawing on our proficiency in delivering schemes in a secure environment, we have seen continued interest in our heritage and public facing expertise. The confidence shown in public sector spending certainly paves the way for construction industry growth as the UK leaves the single market.”
