The development between the town’s railway station and Telford town centre will include homes and a digital skills and enterprise hub run by Telford College and the University of Wolverhampton.
The critical regeneration project was made possible after the council secured £22.3m from the Government’s Towns Fund.
Procured via Pagabo’s Major Works Framework, the project brings together Willmott Dixon’s construction and development solutions expertise.
Cllr David Wright, Cabinet Member for Economy, Housing, Transport and Infrastructure at Telford & Wrekin Council, said: “Willmott Dixon will now be working with the council and partners to support design development in preparation for the submission of a planning application in spring next year as well as supporting the council to preparing business cases, which is the next stage in securing the Towns Investment Funding.”
David Atkinson, regional head of land and development for Willmott Dixon, said: “We are delighted to be supporting Telford & Wrekin Council and the town’s stakeholders in delivering the Station Quarter project. “
“We have ambitious plans to deliver highly-sustainable, new homes, educational space, and leisure facilities supported by new public realm and green spaces.”
The project is the latest town centre regeneration scheme for Willmott Dixon.
In the summer of 2020, the business completed the regeneration of Rochdale Riverside, creating 200,000 sq ft of retail and leisure space to encourage inward investment to the town.
Also, in the Autumn of 2020, it handed over the Llys Cadwyn development in Pontypridd to Rhondda Cynon Taff County Borough Council, delivering an innovative business and leisure scheme to replace a derelict 1960’s shopping centre.
