A flurry of large contract wins for national brickwork, scaffolding and drywall business, Phoenix Brickwork, has seen it both spread its wings across the UK, and boost its turnover.
Of five new recent contracts, the three largest – totalling over £3.5m – have pushed this year’s turnover to over £25m, with wins in Nottingham, York and Birmingham.
The biggest contract, worth £1.5m, sees Phoenix team up with main contractor, Clegg Construction, to provide EOS SFS, drywall Internal partitions and ceiling as well as Rockfon suspended ceilings on a new 188-bedroom, four-storey Premier Inn in Layerthorpe, York.
Down the road in Nottingham, Phoenix will provide the brickwork and internal blockwork for the new iQ student accommodation block for Galliford Try. A total of 85 new student flats are being created as part of an ongoing development in Nottingham with the contract win for Phoenix topping more than £1m.
The third largest completion – which touched nearly £1m for Phoenix, was Wylde Green Retirement Apartments for new client, Adlington Retirement Living. Phoenix will provide a brickwork and scaffold package. The retirement apartment complex is a four-storey, 57-apartment development in Sutton Coldfield.
Further project wins this year include projects in Sheffield and Tamworth, with Phoenix’s team delivering fire-stopping work, external brickwork and blockwork services for Equans and GMI Construction. These last two wins, each worth in excess of £250,000, demonstrate the broader reach that Derbyshire-based Phoenix is experiencing.
In total, these recent contract completions have totalled over £4m, setting Phoenix Brickwork (UK) Ltd on target for exceeding £25m turnover this year.
Christian Watson, group chairman at Phoenix Brickwork (UK) Ltd, said: “These recent successes are built on the quality of our team and their work.
“Our relationships with main contractors, many of whom are long-term clients, are becoming ever stronger, as we continue to deliver projects on time and on budget, to extremely high standards. It is exciting to witness such strong growth in the first half of this year already, with more wins to follow. In addition, the further growth of Phoenix in wider geographical projects will only fuel more success.”
With offices in Pinxton and Northampton, the company continues to extend its commercial reach across the country.
