Work starts on £7M Lincolnshire public sector hub
Willmott Dixon has started on-site at a new college and public sector hub facility in Horncastle, Lincolnshire, which will provide further education space for Boston College, alongside acting as East Lindsey District Council’s new headquarters.
Procured using the Scape National Major Works framework, the new £7M state-of-the-art shared space, which is due to complete in summer 2022, will be occupied by the Council when it moves from its current headquarters in Manby to streamline its services and reduce its maintenance costs and carbon footprint.
Alongside the benefit of being housed in a more sustainable building, the Council says its relocation to Horncastle will also bring economic benefits to the local area and place the governing body at the centre of the district.
Nick Heath, Director of Delivery at Willmott Dixon, said: “We’re very pleased that work is now underway on this project and we can help East Lindsey District Council to create a new further education facility and headquarters that not only aligns with its environmental targets but also represents long-term savings on its current outdated facility.”
