Flagship deal for Billington

Have your say

Billington Structures, the Barnsley-based constructional steelwork specialist, has won a contract from Willmott Dixon to work on a flagship community hub in Nottingham.

The Wombwell firm is supplying more than 300 tonnes of steel that will be used to create the framework and decking of the hub which is designed to bring services operated by the NHS, Nottingham City Council and Nottingham City Homes together under one roof.

Billington Structures’ project manager, Dave Higgins, 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.”

The building is designed to include modern health facilities and services; a 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.
