Contractor expecting turnover in South Wales to hit £200m next year 

Cardiff bay office

Willmott Dixon has doubled office space in Cardiff as it looks to drive turnover to £200m in South Wales next year.

The firm has relocated from Cathedral Road, where it had been based for more than 20 years, to offices at the nearby Global Reach building on the Celtic Gateway Business Park in Cardiff Bay (pictured), taking 7,769 ft2 of space on the third floor to house 200 staff.

Willmott Dixon has doubled turnover in South Wales to £165m per year since 2009 and is forecasting this to increase to £200m in 2018 as it continues to win more jobs in that part of the UK.

Projects it has delivered in Cardiff and South Wales include the Royal Welsh College of Music, Cardiff and Vale College, One Central Square (named RICS commercial project of the year in 2017) and the new Computational Foundry at Swansea University.

It is also behind the £25 million Eastern High school for 11-18 year olds for the City of Cardiff Council, built on land formerly used by Cardiff and Vale College’s Trowbridge campus.
