Fit-out specialist Paragon Interiors Group has won three contracts covering 200,000 sq ft of office space.
The business, which has offices in Manchester and Nottingham, has started work on a 150,000 sq ft UK call centre for AXA Insurance in Ipswich, as well as Britvic Soft Drinks' new 32,000 sq ft marketing headquarters in Hemel Hempstead, and a new head office for residential search engine property company rightmove.com in Milton Keynes.
Although all the contracts are in the south they will involve the firm's Manchester team.
Mike McKeown, sales director at Paragon, said: "These contract wins result from a huge effort in 2011 where we defied the hugely challenging economic conditions, especially in our sector.
"We had a major recruitment drive in April 2011 and we have more good news on the horizon with two prestigious contracts about to come on stream so we will be recruiting again very soon to add further skilled personnel to our team."
The business, owned by Nottingham-based Alan Hardy, is expected to take on the staff at its Nottingham office.
