Wildgoose racks up nearly £40m in new orders
The company has been selected to build a new £1.9m two-storey extension at Saffron Medical Centre in Leicester and industrial units at Albion Gateway in Burton, Staffordshire, for St Modwen Developments Ltd, in a deal worth £5.7m.
Wildgoose, based in Alfreton, will also be building a £8.8m 84-bed care home in Stonnall, Staffordshire, on behalf of the Restful Homes Group, Brackley Primary Care Centre, in Northamptonshire, in a contract worth £9.3m and a 69-bed £6.9m care home in Ampthill, Bedfordshire.
Another contract win announced recently involves a high profile £6.7m project to remodel Northampton Museum and Art Gallery for Northampton Borough Council.
The project will see a dramatic transformation of Northampton’s Museum and Art Gallery in Guildhall Road, with a major expansion more than doubling the available public space.
These latest orders come just two months after Wildgoose secured three contracts worth a total of £16m. These included an industrial unit in Burton, two pubs for brewer Marston’s, in Runcorn and Bradford, and a care home in Watford.
As a result of the recent orders, Wildgoose has employed eight new staff including an estimator, a contract manager, a design and build manager, a senior quantity surveyor, an assistant quantity surveyor and three site managers.
Jonathan Wildgoose, executive chairman of Wildgoose Construction, said: “We are delighted to win yet another order for a care home for the Restful Homes Group. To win repeat business is always pleasing and is a testament to the strong and successful relationships we build with our clients. All of our new contract wins mean that we have taken on eight new staff to bolster our talented workforce and together we are looking ahead to an even brighter future with our order book going from strength to strength.”
Earlier this year Wildgoose scooped best commercial project at the Local Authority Building Control (West Yorkshire) Building Excellence Awards 2018. The award was given to Wildgoose for building Square Chapel Arts Centre in Halifax, which was designed by Matlock architects Evans Vettori. Recently they won a Royal Institute of British Architects Yorkshire award. Wildgoose is also a finalist in the East Midlands Chamber awards in the Excellence in Customer Service category.
