Opportunities for suppliers and sub-contractors in the construction industry will be made available at a ‘Meet the Buyer’ event in Chesterfield.

Wilmott Dixon is the appointed contractor of Chevin Housing Association Ltd (a member of the Together Housing Group) for the 55 unit extra care residential scheme at Foolow Court in Chesterfield.

Wilmott Dixon will hold the event at the Town Hall on Wednesday, September 26 between 8am and 12pm.

This Chevin Housing Association development is the first of 3 new extra care facilities to be built across Derbyshire, which will create 197 new homes. Work is due to start on the Chesterfield site in November 2012.

Cllr John Burrows, Leader of Chesterfield Borough Council said: “We’ve worked with a number of developers on these ‘Meet the Buyer’ events. They are a great opportunity for local companies and sub-contractors to get their foot in the door for up and coming work.”
