Community hub will speed up regeneration
Billington Structures said its record for involvement in high profile projects has been strengthened with its appointment by Willmott Dixon to work on a flagship community hub in Nottingham.
The company has moved on site to build the community hub in St Ann’s, Nottingham , which is part of a major programme to regenerate the neighbourhood and create new community facilities.
The Joint Service Centre has been devised by NHS Nottingham City , Nottingham City Council and Nottingham City Homes to bring together a range of existing and new services under one roof.
More than 300t of steel for the project is being supplied and erected by Billington for the state-of-the-art building. When complete by February 2012, it will include: modern health facilities and services; a local library offering additional services such as reading groups, workshops and events; new facilities for families and young people; and a housing services centre offering rent and benefit advice.
Dave Higgins, Project Manager of Billington Structures, said: “This is a very high profile project and we are proud to be involved in something that will have such a positive impact on the local community.”
