THE BIG SCREEN: WILLMOTT DIXON TO BUILD CINEMA COMPLEX

Willmott Dixon has secured a £12.5m contract to create Daventry’s new Mulberry Place Cinema complex. 

The Daventry District Council-led project will see the former library buildings off North Street demolished to make way for a four-screen cinema complex that has restaurants, a public square and splash fountains.  

Procured through Major Works, England and Northern Ireland, part of the Scape National Construction framework, the Mulberry Place Cinema development is expected to take around 18 months to complete, with the cinema set to open its doors in spring 2021.

Michelle Cotterill, Director at Willmott Dixon, said: “At Willmott Dixon, we have a purpose beyond profit and that includes being passionate about leaving a lasting positive legacy, something that Mulberry Place will provide for many decades to come. 

“Over the duration of the scheme, we have committed to investing into the local community. This will see us working with local schools and colleges on community projects, as well as sourcing local spend and labour wherever possible.”

Ian Vincent, Chief Executive at Daventry District Council, said: “We’re pleased to have appointed Willmott Dixon to build this flagship development in Daventry town centre. They already have a strong track record in helping us to deliver construction projects within our local community and we look forward to working with them to turn our plans for a new cinema into reality by spring 2021.”
