Local contractors in and around Woking have the chance to work on the regeneration of the town’s central retail district. Sir Robert McAlpine, the main contractor for the development, is on the lookout for sub-contractors, suppliers and construction SMEs in the region to support its work on the £300m contract.

The Victoria Square development will see the construction of two residential towers, a new Hilton hotel and 120,000 square feet of retail space. Accompanying projects include a new energy centre, a new glazed canopy for the shopping centre entrance, new parking decks and hard and soft landscaping.

Sir Robert McAlpine’s contract includes work on the shell and core works to the entire development and the fit out of the residential towers and hotel. Work on the project is set to finish in 2021.

The construction firm is looking for suppliers across the South East who work across a vast range of trade categories, including ceramic tiling, joinery, glazing, brick, roofing, plasterboard and steel fabrication.

Paul Walker, the Woking Project Director for Sir Robert McAlpine, commented: “Work is progressing fast on site with clearance and demolition work currently underway. As we move in to the next stage of development, we’re hoping to meet with subcontractors and suppliers in and around Woking to help meet our completion date.

In partnership with Constructionline, we will be hosting a supplier engagement day at HG Wells Conference Centre in Church Street East, Woking on 1st March 2018 where we hope to develop new working partnerships for this project and others in the future.

We feel it’s only right that local SMEs in the region are able to benefit from the work opportunities this regeneration project will create.”

The event will take place on 1st March from 9am – 3pm at HG Wells Conference Centre, Church Street East, Woking, GU21 6HJ. Tickets are free for all attendees, book here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/sir-robert-mcalpine-supplier-engagement-day-tickets-41814954655
