Willmott Dixon is linking with Bath & North East Somerset Council to find local subcontractors and suppliers for the £36m regeneration of Keynsham town centre. Work started this month to deliver the new retail space, library, community space, and low carbon council offices. A Meet the Buyer Event will be held at Somerdale Lodge, Fry Club, Keynsham, on December 4 to find firms to help finish the job.

   

Councillor Cherry Beath, Cabinet Member for Sustainable Development, said: “We want as much local involvement in the regeneration of Keynsham as possible which is why Bath & North East Somerset Council and Willmott Dixon want local businesses to come forward and attend this event. There are many opportunities available for all sorts of local businesses to play a part in this landmark project.”

   

Neal Stephens, Managing Director for Willmott Dixon in the South West, said: “We need many different subcontractors with a wide range of skills. By sourcing our materials and using local contractors wherever possible there is considerable benefit for the local community during the construction phase which runs all the way until Autumn 2014.”
