Lovell is hosting a special networking event in King’s Lynn where local construction businesses and tradespeople can find out about opportunities to work with the company on major homes projects in the area.
The free ‘Meet the Buyer’ event will be held at the Wembley Room, Alive Lynnsport, Greenpark Avenue, King’s Lynn PE30 2NB from 7am to 1pm on Thursday, 30 November.
The drop-in session, part of the company’s commitment to creating opportunities and work for local businesses, will enable construction firms to meet the Lovell team.
“We’re hoping that as many local subcontractors as possible will come along on the day,” says Lovell regional managing director Simon Medler. “It’s an opportunity to get to know our project teams and find out more about us and the work we’re doing in King’s Lynn and across East Anglia. We place a high value on our supply chain partners and are always interested in meeting subcontractors with the right expertise and experience to work with us. Providing opportunities for firms in the area to get involved with our schemes is an important part of ensuring that local communities benefit from the investment we provide.” Lovell is set to complete over 290 properties in Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Essex this year with a regional forward order book now valued at £221 million.
Cllr Alistair Beales, Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk cabinet member for corporate projects and assets, says: “This is a great opportunity for local subcontractors to get involved with our major housing schemes. When we developed the partnership with Lovell one of the key elements was to bring additional benefits to the area in the form of jobs, apprenticeships and other opportunities. I am delighted that these are now coming to fruition. I would encourage local subcontractors and suppliers to register for the event as soon as possible, so that they can take advantage of the opportunities on offer.”
Major projects which Lovell is currently working on in King’s Lynn include the fast-selling £19.9 million Orchard Place development in Marsh Lane, King’s Lynn. The 130 homes at Orchard Place – 120 for sale and 10 affordable homes – are the first to be built through Lovell’s large-scale development partnership with the Borough Council of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk.
The company is also delivering the £5.1 million latest stage of the regeneration of the Hillington Square estate in King’s Lynn, in partnership with Freebridge Community Housing. Lovell is refurbishing 44 flats and maisonettes in the fourth phase of this major estate redevelopment programme. This autumn, Lovell will start work on a £6.5 million development of 50 new houses in King’s Lynn as part of the Nar Ouse Regeneration Area (NORA) project. Launched by the Borough Council of King’s Lynn and West Norfolk in partnership with Norfolk County Council, the NORA scheme is regenerating brownfield land south of the town centre.
