Midlands contractor opens Lincoln office after demand increase

Following an increase in demand in the Lincoln area, Derby-based construction firm G F Tomlinson has opened a new office in the city centre.

The new office, based on Doddington Road, will help the contractor to work more closely with its Lincoln and Lincolnshire clients as well as create new jobs.

G F Tomlinson has already created new jobs for site staff, contract managers, quantity surveyors and admin support, with more new jobs possible in the future.

The company will also be creating more opportunities for supply chain businesses in the area – further boosting the local economy.

Director at G F Tomlinson, Andy Sewards, said: “We are really excited about opening the new office.

“Because of the amount of work we are securing in Lincoln and Lincolnshire it makes perfect sense for us to open the new office in the area.

“It is located close to the city centre to help us to better serve our clients and work with local supply chain businesses.

The new office opening will increase work secured in the area through the empa (East Midlands Property Alliance) framework.

The aim of empa, which is managed by Scape, is to improve the procurement and delivery of construction and property maintenance for public sector bodies – saving time and money for them and their council taxpayers.

Alan Coole, head of empa, said: “The increase in work is based on our public sector clients realising that through using the empa frameworks they can achieve 9% savings or more on their projects, there is certainty that schemes will be delivered on time and on budget and a guarantee to support local employment.

“Workload has seen substantial growth over the last five years with the public sector increasingly supporting empa and its desire to help deliver projects more effectively.”
