How the scheme on Sheffield Road will look when finished

The three schemes, located on Westgate, Wellgate and Sheffield Road, have been designed by Bond Bryan Architects and are due for completion in 2022. Adept Consulting Engineers is also on the project team for structural engineering.

Willmott Dixon has agreed to donate 5% of the project value into the local community, amounting to £1.3m across all three schemes.

The money will go towards funding local schools and colleges, community projects and charities.

Willmott Dixon teams will also be holding workshops with local ex-offenders and unemployed people to help them back into employment.
