The six projects are across the commercial office, healthcare and hospitality sectors in London and the northwest.

In the commercial office sector, Styles&Wood has a £6.2m contract for a 56,000 sq ft Grade A commercial fit-out at One St Peter's Square in Manchester. This is Styles&Wood's second contract in this development, following its appointment to fit-out DLA Piper's offices in 2015.

It is also working on the £3m, 45,000 sq ft fit-out of Dakota House, a three-storey office building in Concord Business Park in Wythenshawe. This work includes a new glazed main entrance curtain wall and feature canopy and the complete renewal of all mechanical and electrical services; and

Thirdly in this sector it is refurbishing Irongate House, a 26,000 sq ft office building in the City of London. Irongate is the second major contract the Group has secured with Aviva Investors, following its contract to refurbish Westminster House in Manchester in September 2015.

In the healthcare sector Styles&Wood is delivering the £3m fit-out and refurbishment of a treatment clinic in Manchester for CARE Fertility. The contractor is having to work around staff and patients as the facility remains occupied and in operation during works.

Finally, in the hospitality sector, Styles&Wood is working on two hotel contracts for easyHotels.

In Manchester it is stripping out and refurbishing a listed five-storey building on Dale Street to create a 115-room hotel. And in Liverpool it is doing a similar job on a vacant six-storey site on Castle Street, creating a 70-room hotel.

Chief executive Tony Lenehan said: "We are delighted with these contract wins, which demonstrate how the group is leveraging its unique skillset and capabilities to boost growth. 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 northwest, we are expecting this is trend to continue."
