Willmott Dixon opens doors to inspire the next generation
Willmott Dixon is giving local residents a unique glimpse behind the scenes on its projects as part of the national Open Doors week between 16 - 21 March.
Just weeks after winning a Queen’s Award for Enterprise for sustainability, Willmott Dixon has signed a collaborative agreement with The Wildlife Trusts to enlist the expertise of its specialist teams on construction projects across the country.
The agreement will see teams from the Wildlife Trusts’ network of consultancies provide ecology advice and support to nurture local habitats at Willmott Dixon projects. This includes deploying local ecologists with deep knowledge of biodiversity to work with Willmott Dixon project teams to ensure their construction projects enhance local biodiversity and leave a positive legacy for many years after completion.
John Frankiewicz, divisional chief executive of Willmott Dixon Capital Works, explains, “We already work hard to ensure we protect and support the local ecology around our projects; this agreement gives us extra firepower as we have a structure in place to access to the best local minds in each area. We’ll use this expertise on all new build, brownfield and refurbishment work, in areas like carrying out habitat and protected species surveys, providing mitigation advice, support for habitat creation, guidance for the assessment of Code for Sustainable Homes and the ecology elements of BREEAM, plus ecology elements of Environmental Impact Assessments.
Services will be provided via four regional leads, which will facilitate services being provided by local consultants to each site.
