Midas announces over £5m in Bristol based contracts
Midas Interiors, the specialist fit-out and refurbishment division of the Midas Construction Group, has announced over £5m of new contracts won in the Bristol area within the last two months.
Projects include £1.4 million fit out of the new South West College of Law, a £1.7 million refurbishment of the Grade II Listed Theatre Royal in Bath and £1 million refurbishment programme at the BBC Pension Trust offices in Victoria Street Bristol.
Midas Interiors has also been shortlisted for a major award for its work on the £11.8 million Lewins Place office block in Bristol, previously known as Greyfriars. Other ongoing projects involve external refurbishment to parts of the University of West England and fit outs and upgrading to offices at the city's Castlemead Building, Aztec West and at Temple Back.
Farther afield, Midas interiors is implementing improvements to Aldershot Magistrates Court and has completed the conversion of premises in Port Talbot to a new JobCentre Plus before commencing a similar project in Newport.
Derek Quinn, Executive Director of Midas Interiors said: "It's early days to say that these business wins mark the end of the impact of the recession but it is very encouraging that so many diverse organizations are calling up our services right now.
"No business is recession proof but refurbishment work and the upgrading of existing buildings is an ongoing process which has to be undertaken in order to maintain them, to improve the environment for workers or other users and to protect long term investment assets.
"I'm delighted that our work on a wide range of landmark buildings is being recognized by our own industry as well as by the business community."
