Summary of the contract

BMN 001 – The Ditherington Flax Mills Development and Restoration Project.
This contract consists of the provision of construction works for the
development and restoration of the Ditherington Flax Mill Maltings site
which stands on the northern edge of Shrewsbury Town Centre in Shropshire

important site, as well as acting as a catalyst for the wider regeneration
of the area.
The key partners developing this project (Shropshire Council, English
Heritage, Homes and Communities Agency and the Friends of Ditherington
Flax Mill Maltings (FoDFMM) have all recognised the vital importance of
the Flax Mill Maltings for its global contribution to architecture and
engineering, its role in the industrial history of the West Midlands and
its potential to regenerate and bring life back to one of the country’s
most deprived communities.
Although all of the buildings on the site need to be conserved and
developed, this first phase of the project has focussed on the most
significant buildings, those showing the greatest signs of deterioration
and where there is confidence that an end use can be determined.

— restore and conserve the Main Flax Mill, Kiln, Dye and Stove House,
Office and Stables removing them from English Heritage ‘At Risk’ register
and securing the future of this important industrial heritage site,
— provide an ‘exemplar’ in how modern technology and innovation can be
applied to ensure a sustainable future for these historic buildings,
— achieve at a minimum BREEAM “Very Good” standard, which is a significant
achievement for a heritage building,
— secure a sustainable future for this important site, ensuring that a
balanced mix of public and commercial uses,
— enable the FoFMM to continue to take responsibility for helping develop
and manage the public access areas and work with local communities,
— Offer training for people to acquire skills, for example in repairing
and maintaining the historic buildings,
— Ensure the Flax Mill Maltings future and long term sustainability,
— Be a catalyst for the regeneration of the wider site, making a
significant difference to the local area, local economy and the lives of
local people.
The Main Flax Mill (Built 1797, Grade I listed) –Works include restoration
of the existing fabric; installation of a new structural frame and panel
floor system; new fenestration; new M&E systems and fit-out of the lower
two floors. Fit-out of the upper floors will be included if funds can be
obtained.

buildings.
Detailed design to RIBA Stage D has already been completed and
significantly de-risks the site and provides a high level of cost
certainty. Design work to Stage E is currently underway, and for Stage F
will begin in the new year.
The estimated contract value of the first phase is approximately between
15 000 000 GBP and 19 000 000 GBP and is conditional upon ERDF and other
