Contract awarded for Dartmouth Health and Wellbeing Centre

planned view of the development

Published: 12 February 2021

Following a competitive process, Classic Builders have been awarded a £4.1m contract to build the Dartmouth Health and Wellbeing Centre (H&WBC).

The new centre is a partnership project between the Trust, GPs, the CCG and the voluntary sector to bring together in one centre all statutory organisations involved in providing health and care for the people of Dartmouth and surrounding area. The ‘one-stop shop’ approach will mean different professionals can work more closely together to provide better integrated services for local people.

Classic Builders was launched in 2001 and now has more than 80 staff based in Plymouth, Exeter and Cornwall. It has won several awards for quality and sustainability, including most recently, a national award for build quality on its PassivHaus Plus project in Seaton.

Steve Joy, Commercial Manager at Classic Builders commented: “We look forward to starting work on this important project for Dartmouth, and working with stakeholders to create a high quality centre that meets local needs.”

Trust Governor for the South Hams, Dr Craig Davidson, said “We are just thrilled at the news of Classic Builders appointment to build our Health and Wellbeing Centre and look forward to an imminent start of construction.”

If all goes to plan, the new building should be ready to open in summer 2022.
