Willmott Dixon to develop Lincoln emergency services hub

Willmott Dixon has secured an £18m contract to deliver a next-generation emergency services hub for Lincolnshire County Council.

The hub – which will be procured under Scape Group’s national construction framework – will bring together Lincolnshire’s fire and rescue services, police force and ambulance service under one roof.

The development is a key part in the council’s plan which will also see Willmott Dixon demolish the current Lincolnshire fire and rescue HQ to make way for the new combined facility.

“This is part of a major transformation we are seeing in how the emergency services organise their estates to work more effectively and efficiently,” said Peter Owen, managing director for the Midlands at Willmott Dixon.

“We are really pleased to be chosen to build this cutting-edge facility for Lincolnshire's emergency services in Lincoln.”

Victoria Brambini, managing director at Scape Procure, added: “Willmott Dixon has a strong track record for delivering much-needed facilities for local communities through our framework, so it is great to see them working closely with Lincolnshire County Council on such a vital project.

“The new integrated hub will not only allow Lincoln’s emergency services to operate more efficiently and cost-effectively, but the construction of the building itself will also have a positive impact on the surrounding community in the form of jobs, apprenticeships and the use of local suppliers.

“This social value is an added benefit for the community and local economy.”

This development follows similar projects undertaken by Willmott Dixon, including schemes in Blackpool, Grimsby, Birmingham, Sheffield, Newcastle, Barnsley and south Wales.
