Willmott Dixon secures £250k projects with BCU

Birmingham City University(BCU) has appointed West Midlands contractor Willmott Dixon to work on its minor works framework.

After a partnership for a number of years, creating sustainable buildings with art teaching and learning spaces, the three year framework will see the firm delivering projects with a value above £250k.                                             

The framework helps the university to bring together a number of suppliers to work on high quality construction projects over a sustained period of time.

Peter Owen, managing director for Willmott Dixon in the Midlands, said: "Our relationship with BCU has developed alongside the university’s ambitious expansion plans, which have produced a vibrant new campus in the centre of Birmingham.

“By working closely with the university and understanding its objectives, we have been able to deliver key projects that meet the needs of its students and staff.”

Willmott Dixon has worked with BCU in the past on the creation of both the Parkside Building and the Curzon Building, which was awarded two major accolades for quality and sustainability.

Peter Cochrane, project director at BCU, added: "This framework helps the university plan ahead, working with trusted and reliable partners for a defined period of time.

“Willmott Dixon has been an excellent partner in major construction projects and I look forward to continuing to work together over the next three years."
