Willmott Dixon lands £31 million next phase of BCU transformation
Willmott Dixon to build its third project at university's Eastside expansion
Our team is creating a new £30 transport hub in Lincoln which will form in a new gateway to the city and provide significant regeneration to the area around the main railway station.
through the Scape Major Works framework, the scheme will provide a
state-of-the-art bus station, 1,000 space multi-storey car park, retail space
and a new pedestrian plaza.
Led by our
client, City of Lincoln Council, the hub has received £11M funding from the
Department for Transport (DfT), along with a further £2M from the Greater
Lincolnshire Local Enterprise Partnership (GLLEP).
which is due to complete in February 2018, has seen City of Lincoln Council partnering
with the DfT, the GLLEP, Lincolnshire Co-op, Network Rail, Lincolnshire County
Council and East Midlands Trains and the central position of the new transport
hub means that it will encourage new redevelopment within the city centre
improving it even further for the local community.
The largest single structural element of the scheme is the six-level multi-storey car park. The structure, a large square with each elevation measuring approximately 100m-long, is designed with a steel frame offering significant cost and time efficiencies as well as streamlining the design to avoid unnecessary columns.
Peter Owen, managing director of Willmott Dixon in the Midlands:
“This is a fantastic scheme to be part of, transforming the city centre of Lincoln and creating new modern facilities for local people while encouraging new visitors to the city centre.”
