Contractor to build three developments in Derbyshire

Apartments in Clay Cross designed by Lathams Architects and built by Willmott Dixon

Willmott Dixon has been appointed to build a £23m package of extra care developments in Derbyshire.

The care homes, designed by Lathams Architects for Chevin Housing Association, will be spread across three sites at Chesterfield, Alfreton and Clay Cross.

Peter Owen, managing director of Willmott Dixon’s Midlands office, said: “These schemes will really make a difference to the provision of state-of-the-art and affordable housing in Derbyshire, providing highly specialised, quality living space with 24/7 on site care where needed for older people across the county. It will also help support local communities by keeping people together and bringing new jobs and amenities to these areas.”

Work will start in November and is due to be completed towards the end of 2014.
