Co Antrim fit-out company Mivan has secured global contracts worth £35m in the last six months alone.

Jobs include the toilet, reception and related fit-out works of six Bevis Marks in London for leading UK contractor Skanska, for which all manufacturing and assembly will be carried out off-site at Mivan's facility in Antrim.

On the cruise ship side of the business, Mivan has secured over £5.5m in contracts for All Leisure Group, Thomson and P-amp;0.

The £2m refit of the Thomson Celebration is the company's first project with TUI UK and took place in Limassol, Cyprus at the start of November.

Mivan has also completed the refurbishment of the former Alexander Von Humboldt.

Internationally, Mivan has secured the contract for office fit-outs for BG Group in Cairo, following on from its recent success in securing contracts in the Egyptian capital for office fit-outs for companies Exxon Mobil and Procter -amp; Gamble.

Mivan has also secured the theming fit-out contract in Cairo for Mexico-based children's entertainment company KidZania.

The firm also continues to progress in specialist construction works under its £90m contract at Cairo Festival City for Dubai-based Al Futtaim Real Estate Development.

Mivan Prime, the luxury residential brand established in 2010, has also secured £9m in contracts over the past six months, including further contracts with Candy -amp; Candy for private client commissions at One Hyde Park: The Residence at Mandarin Oriental.

Over the forthcoming months Mivan will also be launching new brand Mivan Super Yacht, which will offer a bespoke interior fit-out service onboard luxury vessels, following an extensive research project in partnership with Invest Northern Ireland.

Mivan business development director Stephen Mills said that the firm had an excellent year in securing and delivering work for clients across different markets and sectors.

"We are on course to build upon this success in 2013 having already secured over £20m of turnover," he said.
