Moves by the banking sector to rebrand and fresh high street outlets boosted its orderbook bringing in £48m and offering a five-year stream of future work.
Increased investment by food retailers and high end department stores also rose to deliver £34m in turnover.
The two growing work streams helped Styles & Wood edge forward group sales by around 1% to £101m.
Underlying pre-tax profit jumped from £500,000 in 2010 to a more healthy £1.8m.
Tony Lenehan, CEO of Styles & Wood Group, said: “We have continued to deliver strongly in our core sectors, especially within banking and high end retail while at the same time securing new revenue streams including a number of contract wins in the public sector.
“While conditions in the property support services arena are expected to remain challenging in the short term, the group’s proven ability to win contracts across new sectors gives us confidence in our business model and our ability to increase market share.”
Since joining from Bovis Lend Lease, Lenehan has repositioned Styles & Wood to be more strongly customer focused lifting repeat business to 57%.
The firm is also targeting public sector work where spending cuts have boosted the amount of refurbishment and upgrade work in health, schools and local authority accommodation.
This saw margins at the group’s construction business rise from 4.4% to 5.6% as operating profits rose nearly a third to £4.7m on turnover slightly ahead at £83m.
