Willmott Dixon has been appointed by Sedgemoor District Council for a £16m contract to build Northgate Yard, a mixed-use regeneration project in Bridgwater town centre, Somerset.
The 40,000sq ft scheme includes a seven-screen cinema, eight-lane bowling alley and sports bar and has already secured anchor tenants Scott Cinemas and Allstars Bowling. It also features flexible space in four restaurant units with outdoor dining areas, ideal for local, regional and national food and drink brands to create high quality eating places.
Northgate Yard will have outdoor meeting places and landscaping, while the adjacent green space, Brewery Field, will be improved and updated to feature an outdoor children’s play area and parkland with a pond and landscaped planting.
Willmott Dixon was procured through the Southern Construction Framework to deliver Northgate Yard, which will be completed in October 2022.
“This is a much wanted and needed development and we’re delighted there is such an eagerness for this project to come to fruition, delivering a first-class leisure and entertainment hub for the area,” said Cllr Duncan McGinty, Leader of Sedgemoor District Council.
