In the Midlands, Willmott Dixon Interiors builds on an established track-record for fit-out and refurbishment. The company fitted-out four floors at2 Snowhill as well as the refurbishment of L&G’s The Lewis Building, along with similar projects for Coventry University and Milton Keynes Council.
Nick Gibb, Deputy Manging Director for Willmott Dixon in the Midlands, said: “Willmott Dixon Interiors represents a vital part of our business as a Group and the time was definitely right to establish a dedicated presence in the Midlands.
“This ensures that we are able to service all requirements within the market, creating a level of specialist knowledge that greatly enhances our offering as a leading contractor of choice, offering the very best advice across all stages of a customer’s project and creating a holistic service.”
Starting with a core senior team, Willmott Dixon Interiors is looking to expand and create further employment opportunities as it takes on more projects.
Tom McEvoy, Director for Willmott Dixon Interiors in Midlands, said: “The Midlands market is exceedingly active and provides us with a significant opportunity to expand and engage with new projects and schemes across a variety of sectors, as well as further develop relationships with existing customers and consultants such as Travelodge, Department of Health, Barclays and Coventry University.
“While we already have a proven track record of delivering first-class interiors works, this is our first opportunity to engage with the Midlands market directly.
“By utilising Willmott Dixon’s existing position within the regional market, we have identified a pipeline of potential projects and will now be seeking opportunities to develop our portfolio and grow our team.”
Willmott Dixon Interiors also provides a dedicated team for customers looking for smaller fit-outs up to £2 million, providing a service that normally wouldn’t be fulfilled by Willmott Dixon’s construction arm.
