B&K starts on £93m Center Parcs contract set to bring new trade jobs

Building UK’s fifth Center Parcs will boost the construction industry

Bowmer & Kirkland has been selected to construct the leisure buildings at the new Center Parcs in Woburn Forest that will create thousands of new jobs in the trades.

Work will begin this month and is expected to take 72 weeks – with completion in spring 2014.

The build will provide employment for 1,200 construction workers in the run up to opening in spring 2013, when an additional 1,500 jobs will be created.

The £93m contract includes construction of the buildings for the Subtropical Swimming Paradise, restaurants, spa, 75-bedroom hotel, sports hall, conference spaces, supermarket and other associated buildings.

The project builds on an existing relationship between Center Parcs and Bowmer & Kirkland, which has completed a number of refurbishments at Sherwood Forest in Nottinghamshire.

Bowmer & Kirkland Construction Director, Paul Lomas, said: “This latest award by Center Parcs for a fifth UK village is fantastic news for us. We are proud to be associated with Center Parcs and this will enhance our already impressive record in the leisure sector.”
