Ulster Bank Accelerator firm awarded £4m Lisburn hotel contract

  • Fit-out company Konstruct Interiors has been awarded a £4m contract to undertake works at a new 4* hotel in Lisburn.

    The company specialises in delivering bespoke projects for high-end residential, corporate workplace, retail and hospitality outlets across the UK and Ireland. It was awarded the contract for the new Haslem Hotel after completing work at a number of 5* properties in Kensington and Mayfair.

    The firm is currently enrolled in the Ulster Bank Entrepreneur Accelerator programme. It will be responsible for the conversion, refurbishment and fit out of Lisburn’s first city centre hotel which will be operated by The Beannchor Group.

    Boutique hotel Haslem will be the first project in the hotelier sector in Northern Ireland undertaken by Konstruct Interiors to date and the company expects this high-spec addition to its portfolio will generate more opportunities for work within the local hospitality industry.

    Managing Director and Financial Director for the group, Martin Kernan, credits his time with the Ulster Bank Accelerator programme as a key element behind much of the group’s success.

    “We joined the bank’s Accelerator programme in March 2019 and while we weren’t a traditional ‘start-up’ business, we knew we needed help accelerate the growth of Konstruct Interiors. Over the last six months we have received invaluable mentorship and been introduced to key players within the industry who have helped us to win lucrative contracts.

    “Being part of the Accelerator, surrounded by so many other entrepreneurs and with the support from the programme mentors it has definitely helped us develop our business structures. We are a young, driven company with solid business acumen and the means to recruit the best people to our team.”

    Konstruct Interiors has made significant inroads with large scale developers in London and Dublin expect their portfolio to grow significantly in 2020.
