Major contractor opens Lincoln office

The team in Lincoln

Contractor Willmott Dixon has expanded with a new office in Lincoln.

The move follows the firm working in the city for over a decade on projects such as Lincoln Transport Hub and Lincoln South Park to Lea Fields Crematorium and the Public Sector Hub.

Willmott Dixon’s new Lincoln office is at Greetwell Place on Lime Kiln Way and will house 15 staff.

Willmott Dixon is working on several projects across Lincolnshire, with current sites in Lincoln, Horncastle and Spalding. This follows five projects completed in 2022, which were the new Public Sector Hub in Horncastle, a project for Women’s Aid and three SEND schools in Willoughby, Eresby and St Bernards.

The Greetwell Place office will be headed up by Marie Jackson, preconstruction manager at Willmott Dixon, who joined the contractor in 2019 having previously worked at West Lindsey District Council. She said: “Lincolnshire is a fantastic county with a tight-knit business community, so opening a dedicated office for the county demonstrates our focus and commitment to invest in the long term.”

Nick Heath, director of delivery at Willmott Dixon, said: “Having worked in Lincolnshire for so many years, it’s a natural step to strengthen our ties with the county by setting down roots here. Following a busy couple of years in the county, it will be great for the team to have a permanent base, reducing travel time and mileage, as well as giving them a great environment and location in which to work.

“We already have a deep understanding of the Lincolnshire built environment, but by opening an office and further investing in the city, we hope to strengthen relationships with our long-standing customers and become even more embedded in the local community. We’re also looking forward to supporting the region with our newly launched decarbonisation service to help reach the county’s aim to become carbon neutral by 2050.”
