Looking Ahead Positively To 2013

Following on from a successful 2012, recording growth of 58%, Nottinghamshire Construction Company Robert Woodhead has secured more than £10 million of new orders in the 3rd & 4th quarters of 2012.

Business Development Director Glenn Slater discusses the new contracts and looks ahead to 2013:

“The £10 million + of new orders, added to the continuous flow of responsive and planned maintenance work through, Woodhead One our Repairs and Maintenance Division, has given us a very strong platform for further growth in 2013 . The highlights are below:

Woodhead Living, our specialist sustainability division has secured 3 contracts totalling over £5million. We will be working in partnership with Nottingham City Homes to deliver 26 new homes to Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4. We will also be acting as major development partner for Framework Housing, to design and build a 20 bed residential care facility in Scunthorpe, as well as delivering 5 new homes for North Kesteven District Council through the East Midlands Property Alliance Minor Works Framework (EMPA)

Woodhead Heritage have secured phase’s 2 & 3 of Lincoln Castle Walls repairs and consolidation work. This is a £3.6m contract to conserve the Castle Walls, which aims to provide a continuous wall walk experience for visitors and forms part of the £multi-million Lincoln Castle Revealed project. This contract follows on from Phase 1 of the Castle Walls currently ongoing and the Heritage Skills Centre which was completed earlier in 2012.

The EMPA Framework has provided repeat orders including the refurbishment of Whitewater Day Care Centre, following on from the successful completion of a major refurbishment project at a Day Care Centre in Balderton. Both contracts are part of a wider £1.5m refurbishment and modernisation scheme to 6 Day Care Centres in Nottinghamshire for Nottinghamshire County Council. This larger programme adds to a number of interesting projects being completed through EMPA including the consolidation of Newark Castle Walls for Newark & Sherwood District Council.

In addition our public Sector Minor Works division has been appointed to conduct Back Log Maintenance and CQC works at over 40 Health Care Centres and Doctors surgeries countywide. This contract totals £1.2m and will continue up to Easter 2013. This follows the successful completion of similar works in 2012.

There is still a lot of hard work to do, but we have made a promising start to the new year and remain very positive about achieving further growth in 2013.”
