SWINDON Interiors has won a contract to fit out the new £1.3million Cineworld cinema complex at Regent Circus.

Managing director Colin White said: “To have succeeded against five other companies to win this tender is a testament to our ongoing commitment to our clients, and our workforce.

“We were against strong opposition in a competitive environment and we are proud to continue our association with Cineworld.”

Meanwhile, Swindon Interiors’ sister company, G&W Contracting, also based in Swindon, has been awarded the contract to design and build all electrical services at the complex.

This will include supplying and installing fire alarms, emergency lighting, data installation and projection and sound systems. This contract has a value of £430,000 and will provide additional local employment.

Nice to see a local company getting the work - and wager they'll do a good job too.

Seems to be a 2 man company that uses a Swindon company who uses specialist sub-contractors out of Swindon.
