Contract furniture and fit-out specialist Deanestor has announced a record order intake, with £12.5m of orders secured in the last six months.

Contracts have been awarded for delivery through to 2020 and across a diverse range of sectors – private rental schemes, student accommodation, healthcare and education.

A large proportion of the projects are for repeat clients – both developers and contractors – following Deanestor’s successful performance on previous schemes.

The trend towards larger furniture and fit-out contracts of over £1m continues for Deanestor, requiring a high degree of technical design input and project management from its teams.

The latest contracts to be awarded are also spread across the UK – in England, Scotland and Wales.

William Tonkinson, Managing Director of Deanestor, said: “We are delighted with the performance of the business in the first half of this year.

“We have been very successful in diversifying into new markets which has provided a healthy forward order book and a solid foundation for the business in an uncertain economic environment.

“We are the longest established furniture and fit-out provider to the NHS with a track record that spans more than 70 years.

“It is fantastic to see this work continue but also the success of our move into other areas such as high-quality kitchens for major private residential developments.”

Deanestor said £6.8m of the orders are for the manufacture and fitting of fixed furniture for new build-to-rent schemes and student residences.

These include a contract to fit out 656 bedrooms and provide over 200 kitchens for student accommodation provider urbanest in London, and a third student project for the development arm of Mace in Oxford.

In the healthcare sector, Deanestor will be providing furniture for the £350m Grange University Hospital in Gwent for Aneurin Bevan University Health Board – another project for main contractor Laing O’Rourke.

Deanestor’s largest project in the education sector is a £3m contract awarded by Robertson Construction for the new £55m Inverurie Community Campus.

The Mansfield-based manufacturer will furnish and fit out 360 rooms across the campus in just 26 weeks.

This will include the manufacture of 1,950 metres of shelving, 670 metres of laminate and laboratory worktops, 400 base and wall storage units, over 80 teaching walls, and more than 500 items of metalwork.
