Phoenix Brickwork is expanding its UK reach with the appointment of several new team members.

The firm has recruited respected industry professionals Pav Bains, Jim Chandler, Wayne Addison, Neil Weston, Raj Bains and Steve Gates, with more appointments pending. Previously all had worked for Bedford based Irvine-Whitlock.

The new appointments will work alongside the existing team and bring their experience gained across works such as St. Pancras International and Arsenal FC’s Emirates Stadium, to new projects for Phoenix across Greater London and the South East.

Christian Watson, managing director at Phoenix, welcomed the new appointments as the business looks to boost its £15 million turnover with expanding into London and the Home Counties.

He said: “We are delighted to welcome such experience into the business with the addition of these key industry players and now have the perfect platform to handle projects in the Capital and beyond.

“As a business, we have always focused on delivering a quality service to our clients and I know that this ethos is shared by our new appointments.

“This targeted expansion plan is just the first element of our wider plan to develop Phoenix as a national player and our expanded team will bring our co-ordinated service in brickwork, scaffolding and drywalling to projects further south.”
