Birmingham-based Ashford Construction has started work for Bolsover District Council, constructing a new £5 million state-of-the-art centralised depot, blocks, workshops, stores buildings and a “grass” roof.
Covering an area of 1.4 ha the depot will include office site for all the council’s grounds maintenance, refuse, housing repairs and street cleansing operations.
The services currently operate from two separate sites.
Funded from the sale of other buildings and parcels of land, the new depot is due for completion in May 2009.
Ashford Construction’s growing reputation for completing projects in sensitive and potentially problematical situations has underlined their commitment to delivering completed contracts professionally, efficiently and on time.
Ashford says it will work closely with the council, local residents and the professional team to ensure the minimum of disruption and a finished product in which all parties take a good deal of pride.
Andrew Glenn, associate director for Ashford added: “We are fully committed to this exciting scheme for Bolsover District Council, and will ensure that every effort is made to ensure that local residents are kept fully informed during construction and that disruption is kept to a minimum.”
