Willmott Dixon’s track-record for creating sustainable space for people to enjoy will be further enhanced by a GBP 9 million contract to improve one of the most popular forests in England. The company has been appointed by Forestry England to create a new wooden-framed visitor welcome hub at Delamere Forest in Cheshire, which each year welcomes over 750,000 visitors to run, walk, bike, horse ride, listen to live music or take part in a sports event. The project will improve the visitor experience with a new café featuring upgraded facilities including more indoor and outdoor seating, along with key accessibility improvements and a new car park with extra capacity and enhanced vehicle access to cater for busy days and popular events, like Forest Live concerts.

Procured via Major Works England and Northern Ireland, a part of the Scape National Construction framework, Willmott Dixon will start work later this month and finish the main phase of works by summer 2020. Sustainability is a key element with solar panels, a ground source heat pump, a sustainable drainage design and rainwater harvesting all incorporated.

As part of the project, Forestry England’s long-term partner, Forest Holidays, has also started to create a new cabin location so people will have the opportunity to stay overnight in a cabin in the heart of Delamere Forest.
