Head of construction, Peter Stuart, said the contract was a positive step forward for the company.

He said: “We’re delighted to have secured this new project.

“We look forward to completing the project successfully using our extensive experience in this sector.

“It is part of amove to further our relationship with East Midland Housing and work alongside to them and bring some valuable engineering to help them meet the benefits of affordable housing.”
