About us
Willmot Dixon is a privately owned contracting, residential development and property support business and one of the UK’s biggest construction companies, employing more than 3,500 people with a turnover of £1 billion. Willmott Dixon delivers the social infrastructure that people depend on in their daily lives. We partner with our customers to focus on the services they want to provide, not just the building we construct, and we are committed to achieving a higher social purpose through our work.

Key markets
Health & fitness, sports & recreation, hotel & hospitality, spa & wellness, mixed-use projects, urban regeneration, higher/further education. We work across multiple sectors, delivering leisure and sports facilities, hotels, theatres and multi-use spaces.

Product range and services
We understand the issues our customers face, which is why through our network of partners, we are able to provide a ‘toolkit’ of solutions that can be tailored to specific customer needs, including the new Core+ concept – a modular-based leisure space solution. We also work on funding and feasibility, design and construction right through to the operational phase.

USP
The purpose of our business and our people is to build lives less ordinary, leaving a lasting impact through the projects we deliver and the communities we serve. Sustainability is at the heart of our business and we are passionate about leaving the right sort of social, environmental and economic legacy. Being sustainable means we can create whole life value for our customers and partners, and for the users of the buildings we construct.

Key clients
Local authorities, private developers and operators.

Recent projects
Littlehampton Wave, UK; Hart Leisure Centre, Fleet, UK (pictured above); ExCel Sports Hub, Walton on Thames, UK; Moberly Sports Centre, Westminster, London; University of Warwick Sports Hub, Warwick, UK; Horwich Leisure Centre, Bolton, UK.
