Leadbitter Group secures two projects in second phase of Dorchester scheme
The Leadbitter Group has started work on two projects worth nearly £29 million in Dorchester. Both are part of the second phase of redevelopment of the town’s Brewery Square.
The first project, for Brewery Square Development Company (BSDC), involves the design and construction of 68 high quality residential apartments, a 76 bedroom hotel and a three-screen cinema, together with 9,180 metres of retail space; whilst the second will see the design and construction of a 90-bed care home built on behalf of the Somerset Redstone Trust.
The Brewery Square development will provide a major boost to the Dorchester economy as it requires a large workforce, with in excess of 200 construction, design and management personnel being employed on the project at its peak. Leadbitter will also be offering apprenticeships to local people as part of its commitment to working with the community and providing training and employment opportunities.
