Willmott Dixon targets southern counties
Willmott Dixon has opened an office in Farnborough with the aim of generating a £100m pipeline of work by 2020 in Hampshire, Wiltshire, Berkshire and Dorset.
The contractor already has a track record in the region, with projects including a new campus hub at Bournemouth University, Hart Leisure Centre in Fleet, Chippenham Campus for Wiltshire College, the mixed-use Centenary Quay development in Southampton, Warfield Primary School in Bracknell and Urban Village hotel in Portsmouth.
The office at Farnborough Business Park is intended to serve as a platform for growth in the four counties, with an initial 25 full-time staff located at the premises, led by Richard Poulter, Willmott Dixon’s deputy managing director for its construction business in the southern counties.
“We are seeing a surge of activity, both in the public and private sectors across the region, so Farnborough is an ideal location to open a new office,” said Richard Poulter.
“Our structure is based on making sure we have locally based teams for our customers and the office will expand our ability to focus exclusively on Hampshire, Dorset, Wiltshire and Berkshire, where we have already delivered notable work. Our goal is to generate a turnover of £50m by 2018 across the region, rising to £100m in 2020, and we’ll be creating new jobs along the way as part of our focus to use local companies whenever possible.”
