The Government has put construction at the heart of it’s post pandemic recovery plan, breathing new life and generating prosperity in the communities we live in. Levelling up forms a key part of an ambitious plans for regeneration across the UK, enhancing town centres to help local businesses and upgrading local heritage sites to strengthen the local economy and build civic identity.
We have been at the heart of many critical projects across England and Wales that have helped generate local economic growth and enhanced the community. Whether it be our renovation of the iconic Globe Theatre in Stockton-on-Tees, a venue that once complete will bring over £18m into the local economy each year, our Feethams House office development and new home of the Northern arm of The Treasury in Darlington, or our award winning Llys Cadwyn development in Pontypridd, transforming a derelict 1960s shopping centre into a state of the art, modern mixed-used development.
