In honour of Nottinghamshire Day, specialist construction partner Clegg Construction reflects on landmark projects it has delivered across the county over recent decades.
The company, which recently ranked #34 in Nottinghamshire’s Top 200 Companies 2022, has delivered over £50m worth of iconic developments in partnership with coveted universities, sporting giants and award-winning developers – with highlights including:
- Several projects delivered in partnership with both of Nottingham’s universities, including the University of Nottingham’s Energy Technology Building - which was awarded the country’s first BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ rating for an educational building – plus the RIBA Award-winning, BREEAM Excellent Lyth Building recently completed for Nottingham Trent University.
- Projects for the county’s leading sporting clubs including a first-class training facility created for Nottingham Forest Football Club, plus two state-of-the-art stands (Bridgford Road and Fox Road), floodlights and an electronic scorecard for Nottinghamshire County Cricket Club at Trent Bridge.
- Iconic schemes such as the River Crescent apartment development, a £27m development at the forefront of the Trentside regeneration, as well as Center Parcs’ highly sustainable offices and headquarters, situated within Sherwood Energy Village.
Simon Blackburn, Managing Director at Clegg, commented: “Nottingham has been home to the Clegg Group for over 20 years and during that time Clegg Construction is exceptionally proud to have played a key role in adding to the county’s characterful and historic built environment.
“We have built and maintained strong partnerships with a wide range of Nottinghamshire-based businesses across a range of key sectors, building up a strong portfolio of sustainable, user-centric schemes that we are extremely proud of, whilst also anticipating the delivery of other exciting local projects that we are currently managing.”
Nottinghamshire has played home to Clegg since 1998, when, after almost 70 years of being based in Derbyshire, the company - then called D. E. Clegg - relocated to offices in the city’s historic Lace Market.
The company is currently making excellent progress on two schemes in the county; the multi-million-pound expansion of Carlton le Willows Academy in Gedling, due to complete late summer 2023, plus the sensitive transformation of the University of Nottingham’s historic Florence Boot Hall into high-quality student accommodation. This marks the sixth project that Clegg has been appointed to deliver in partnership with the university.
