Elmwood Projects, a Glaswegian fit-out specialist, has taken over Shaylor’s Silverstone Experience project, Construction News can reveal.
The firm was originally a subcontractor on the project when works came to a standstill due to the main contractor Shaylor falling into administration in June.
At the time, a spokeswoman for the Silverstone Experience claimed the job was two weeks away from practical completion despite the site being put on lockdown and work was stalling due to a lack of site insurance.
CN understands the fit-out firm has taken responsibility for the final stages of the project and is due to complete on the Towcester site in the next three to four weeks.
The contractor has retained the services of at least one former Shaylor employee on the project in its efforts to do so.
According to the Silverstone Experience website, the visitor attraction is scheduled to open on 25 October.
Administrator documents for Shaylor Group from FRP Advisory list Elmwood Projects as a creditor owed over £317,000 by the collapsed firm.
Last week, Wolverhampton Council announced that Willmott Dixon Interiors is the preferred partner to take over on Shaylor’s stalled £38m Wolverhampton Civic Hall redevelopment, which has also been stalled since June.
The refurbishment and fit-out arm of Willmott Dixon is set to complete structural, engineering and electrical works, as well as design and fit-out improvements, which are due to restart in the coming weeks.
