Contractor J Tomlinson has been appointed on the second
phase of a major regeneration scheme in the West Midlands. 
Earlier this year the Nottingham-based company began work on
phase one constructing 11 new industrial units at St. Modwen’s Albion Gateway
project at Burton-upon-Trent. These are due to be completed in November. 
Now the firm has been appointed to build a further seven new
industrial premises as part of the second phase of the 10-acre, mixed-use
development which is replacing part of the former Pirelli tyre factory with a
mixture of warehouse, trade counter, industrial units, restaurants, a public
house and a hotel. 
Construction managing director at J Tomlinson Martin
Gallagher said: “There were strong levels of interest in the first phase of
this high-profile development and we are very pleased to have now been
appointed to build the second phase of the Albion Gateway scheme. 
“This is the latest in a number of regeneration projects
that J Tomlinson has worked on and is great news for the East Staffordshire
economy, as well as for us as a company.” 
The contracts have supported additional job opportunities at
J Tomlinson. The scheme is also providing work for local subcontractors and
suppliers as both phases of the project are carried out. 
Phase one and two will bring almost 60,000 sq ft of new
business and industrial premises to the market. 
Located on the main arterial route to the north east of
Burton-on-Trent’s town centre, the scheme benefits from its close proximity to
major transport links, including the A38 and A50. St. Modwen, the UK’s leading
regeneration specialist, is investing in the local road infrastructure, which
will include two new dedicated junctions to the scheme as well as local highway
improvements on the Derby Road.
