Derbyshire firm Wildgoose Construction is celebrating the official opening of its new offices as well as securing orders worth £13.6m.
Formerly based in Ashover, Wildgoose has moved to Horsefair House in King Street, Alfreton, after creating ten new jobs, taking the number of staff at the firm to a total of 72.
The increase in employees comes as Wildgoose projects a turnover of £40m by the end of September 2014, compared to £25m at the same time last year.
The firm has also announced new contracts including Gracewell Care Home in Solihull, York College Construction Skills Centre, Redwell School in Northampton, Dalton Medical Centre and another pub for brewer Marston’s at Leek in Staffordshire.
Wildgoose has increased the number of construction teams from four to five, taking on three new site managers, a new contracts manager, a design and build manager, two estimators, a buyer, a site engineer and a management trainee.
More than 100 guests from within the building sector across the country attended the official opening of Wildgoose’s new offices, which was performed by Marjory Wildgoose, a non-executive director at the firm.
Mrs Wildgoose, already chairman and vice-chairman of a number of companies representing interests in the UK and abroad, was appointed a director of the company in 1970 and has been an active non-executive director ever since.
She said: “I am very pleased to officially open these wonderful new offices and it gives me great pleasure to see Wildgoose going from strength to strength.
“The reputation of the company is unsurpassed and we pride ourselves on giving clients value for money as well as the best possible service.”
