Inox Equip is set to embark on a major catering fit-out at the National Indoor Arena (NIA) in Birmingham, one of the most prestigious projects it has been involved with in 13 years of trading.
The project is a huge coup for the business, which admits it has endured “sleepless nights” preparing to secure the contract.
Work on the £26m redevelopment of the NIA is now underway, with Inox scheduled to kick off the first phase of the catering installation in mid-September.
The CEDA member says the project covers all of the arena’s public areas and is due for completion in December 2014.
The revamped NIA will feature an enhanced hospitality and food and beverage offer, along with seven-days-a-week retail outlets to attract visitors.
The catering areas will fit into a revised flow throughout the NIA, which will increase the ease of access and comfort.
Mark Kendall, director of Inox Equip, said: “Having invested a considerable amount of time, effort and sleepless nights over the last two years, myself and the team are extremely proud to be part of this iconic development and look forward to working with the NIA and BAM teams.”
The past 12 months have been busy for Buckingham-based Inox Equip. It has refurbished its HQ, invested in a new IT infrastructure, enhanced its 3D modelling design studio and added a further two project managers to its team.
The main contractor for the overall redevelopment of the NIA is BAM Construction.
