Lovell is looking to meet up with local subcontractors and suppliers to help with work on a £20.5m estate regeneration scheme in King’s Lynn, Norfolk.

Lovell wants to appoint new supply chain partners to work on the four-year Hillington Square regeneration scheme for Freebridge Community Housing.

Work starts this summer on the extensive building programme which will include kitchen and bathroom replacements for the estate’s 320 flats, window and door renewals and insulation work.

The contract also covers the replacement of external cladding, rebuilding of balconies and walkways, construction of new staircases, installation of secure entrances and new lifts and remodelling of garages.

Lovell is hosting a free “Meet the Buyer” event between 10am and 5pm on Friday, June 14  at the Hillington Square Community Centre, Hillington Square, King’s Lynn PE30 5HX.

Lovell construction manager Michael Saunders said: “The Hillington Square programme will create significant work opportunities locally and this event is designed to enable new and existing members of our supply chain to find out more about the scheme.

“People just need to turn up on the day to find out more and speak to our site team who will be on hand to talk about the project and answer any questions.”

Tony Hall, chief executive of Freebridge Community Housing, added: “This exciting project will transform Hillington Square over the next few years and we are looking forward to working with Lovell on this regeneration.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for local construction companies to get involved.”
