The project, which will be complete in December 2021 involves the demolition of the existing town hall and the construction of a nine-storey building that will accommodate the 3,800m² town hall as well as 7,100m² of commercial office space.
Chris Lawrence, Operations Director for Kier Regional Building, said: “As the local Crawley-based office of Kier Regional Building we are delighted to be delivering this project and look forward to seeing the structure take shape in the coming months.”
Councillor Peter Lamb, Leader of Crawley Borough Council, added: “This is a hugely important step in this major project because this investment will save money for taxpayers and generate income for the council, which will help us maintain services. This is a very good deal for Crawley.”
Matt Willcock, Development Director of Westrock, said: “Our joint venture with Crawley Borough Council shows the benefits of public-private partnerships. Working closely with Crawley, we will deliver much-needed new housing, workspace and public realm as well as an upgraded town hall.”
