The Post Office has appointed five firms to its £30m national refurbishment and fit-out framework, Construction News can reveal.
The winning bidders are Havelock Europa, Interserve, ISG, Shaylor Group and Styles and Wood.
The framework, part of the Crown Transformation Programme, is expected to last two years and is divided into four geographical lots: Northern Ireland, North, Midlands and South-west, and South-east.
Work will include the revision of internal branch layouts and the removal of fortress counters to make branches more open plan.
General redecoration works involving flooring, new shop-fittings and internal signage are included, as well as upgrades to lighting in customer areas and other small works as required.
Shaylor Group is the only SME to win a place on the framework.
CEO Stephen Shaylor said: “This is a fantastic win for the company, building upon our existing strong reputation and performance in the retail sector.
“We have established a dedicated delivery team within the business which will utilise each of our regional offices, and we look forward to successful delivery of the programme.”
