Willmott Dixon makes a start on ‘field of dreams’

Work on a ‘visionary’ project to create a new cricket clubhouse on Victoria Embankment in Nottingham has now begun.


Nottingham-based contractor Willmott Dixon is one of more than 50 local partners which is helping to build a brand new dedicated cricket clubhouse on Victoria Embankment at the Meadows Recreation Ground. The contractor has teamed up with Trent Bridge Community Trust- representing Nottinghamshire Cricket Club, & Nottinghamshire Cricket Board, Nottingham City Council and Maber architects to deliver the project. Called the Field of Dreams Project, the new clubhouse is the vision of the Trent Bridge Community Trust to leave a true legacy from the Investec Ashes Test Series at Trent Bridge in 2013 and 2015. Nick Heath, operations director at Willmott Dixon in the East Midlands, said: “This is a significant project for Nottingham and something that we are very proud to be putting our weight behind – we are committed to the city and getting involved with initiatives like this is very important to us. “We will be using the project as the Willmott Dixon Foundation regional Trainee Challenge Project for 2015, which will allow us to give a number of young people working with us as apprentices and trainees the opportunity to gain real, on the job experience throughout the 24 week build. “The project will deliver a brand new dedicated cricket clubhouse, which will house cricket teams in the summer and junior football in the winter, and will give sport in Nottingham a real boost.” Work has started on the brand new clubhouse, which is due for completion by the end of the year and will create four changing rooms, toilets, showers, disability access, rooms for officials, kitchen area, and external viewing area. The build is expected to take 24 weeks with an official launch as part of the Ashes Test Match Series in early August 2015 by England and Australian players.
