J Tomlinson secures second phase at Albion Gateway

Contractor J Tomlinson has been appointed on the second phase of a major regeneration scheme in Burton-upon-Trent.

Earlier this year the Nottingham-based company began work on phase one constructing 11 new industrial units at St Modwen’s Albion Gateway project at Burton-upon-Trent. These are due to be completed in November. Now the firm has been appointed to build a further seven new industrial premises as part of the second phase of the 10-acre, mixed-use development which is replacing part of the former Pirelli tyre factory with a mixture of warehouse, trade counter, industrial units, restaurants, a public house and a hotel. Construction managing director at J Tomlinson Martin Gallagher said: “There were strong levels of interest in the first phase of this high-profile development and we are very pleased to have now been appointed to build the second phase of the Albion Gateway scheme. “This is the latest in a number of regeneration projects that J Tomlinson has worked on and is great news for the East Staffordshire economy, as well as for us as a company.” Phase one and two will bring almost 60,000 sq ft of new business and industrial premises to the market.
