Bowmer & Kirkland starts £93m Center Parcs contract

30 Oct 12 Bowmer & Kirkland has started work constructing the leisure buildings and facilities at the new Center Parcs holiday village at Woburn Forest in Bedfordshire.

The £93m contract includes construction of the buildings for the Subtropical Swimming Paradise, restaurants, spa, 75-bedroom hotel, sports hall, conference spaces, supermarket and other associated buildings.

In August, ISG was awarded a £61m contract to build the accommodation element of the project - 625 lodges across the 365 acre site.

Bowmer & Kirkland mobilises on site this week and is expected to take 72 weeks, completing in spring 2014. The build will provide employment for 1,200 construction workers.

Woburn Forest will be Center Parc’s fifth UK village. Bowmer & Kirkland has worked for the client before, on refurbishments at Sherwood Forest in Nottinghamshire.

Bowmer & Kirkland construction director Paul Lomas said: “This latest award by Center Parcs for a fifth UK village is fantastic news for us. We are proud to be associated with Center Parcs and this will enhance our already impressive record in the leisure sector.”
