Ten full-time roles and 250 jobs for local construction workers have been created by a civil engineering firm on Teesside with the winning of a £2.5m contract at the prestigious Wynyard Park development in County Durham.
The development is part of a wider mixed-use project on the edge of Wolviston that which combines a new village, business park and the prestigious housing site, where self-build homes are available next to projects by established housebuilding companies Avant Homes, David Wilson Homes, Story Homes and Taylor Wimpey.
Stockton-on-Tees-based HMH Civils has been awarded the contract – its third on the site – for constructing roads and sewers in the self-build area. The company is just three years old and has already established itself for civil engineering and housebuilding projects across the North East and North Yorkshire regions.
John Hughes, a director of HMH Civils, says: “This is also not only good news for us, it has a positive knock-on effect locally. Wherever possible we employ local labour so it means jobs and investment for this area, too.”
Wynyard Park’s development director Matt Johnson adds: “Wynyard Park is a significant development for the Teesside area and we are committed to using local companies and suppliers wherever we can so we are very pleased to be working with HMH Civils who have in turn created local jobs.”
