Despite these being hard times, Clegg Construction is continuing to go from strength to strength with numerous projects under way in the midlands.
Key work currently being undertaken by the Nottingham-based Clegg Construction includes building a £12 million office block, which is around a month away from completion, and a new £6 million academy building for training purposes at the Rolls Royce plant in Derby.
Further work includes the pioneering Energy Technologies Building at the University of Nottingham. The new £6 million building will include the very latest environmentally friendly features to conserve energy and will be carbon neutral.
Simon Blackburn, managing director at Clegg Construction, said: “I’m delighted that we’re proving to be so successful in the midlands with a number of key projects under way.
“These are undoubtedly difficult times, so to have secured a number of contracts and to be working on numerous development projects in the midlands is excellent news for the company.
“Our aim now is to build on our success in the midlands so that it continues in future years and we go from strength to strength.”
Further projects in the midlands which Clegg Construction is working on include a new £4 million office block in Derby, a £3 million laboratory refurbishment for Aston University and a large-scale development in Telford.
The Telford project involves building a new Morrisons supermarket and ancillary retail units with apartments above. Further works on site include 16 mews houses and two blocks of retirement apartments. The total value of these projects is £14.5 million with completion in spring 2014.
