Willmott Dixon – Impact on The Local Area

 

Phase one of the Eastside project, saw Willmott Dixon invest £25 million in using local companies within a 20-mile radius of the site. During the construction of The Curzon Building, this project sustained 1,300 jobs around Birmingham, and we created 46 new jobs for trainees, apprentices and people looking for employment.

 

We also invested £1 million into the 4Life Academy in Perry Bar, which has prepared over 2,000 people for work. Students, staff and visitors to the new campus benefit from nearby transport links, including the redeveloped New Street station and the proposed high speed rail link.
