Willmott Dixon Interiors to refurbish historic buildings in Sutton

Willmott Dixon Interiors has been appointed to refurbish two historic buildings in Sutton, South London. The £4.4 million project for the London Borough of Sutton involves transforming two historic buildings formerly occupied by Topshop and Vision Express on 137-145 High Street in the town centre to create 20,000 sq ft of modern retail and business space.

An important aspect of Interiors’ work is to protect the historic features of both four-storey buildings while modernising the space to allow the upper floors to provide large, open-plan floor spaces, with the basement and ground floor becoming separate commercial units.

The project was tendered via Procurement Hub and is part-funded by the government’s Future High Streets Fund, through which the Council secured £11.35 million to transform the town centre.

As part of its work, Willmott Dixon Interiors has committed to investing in the local community and is partnering with The South London Careers Hub and Construction Industry Training Board to promote career opportunities, with specific initiatives made available to students, women and care leavers.

Simon Wilson, director at Willmott Dixon Interiors: “We are looking forward to supporting Sutton Council’s efforts to breathe new life into the high street. Our team has vast experience in transforming underused buildings for the benefit of local people and economies. This important refurbishment will not only deliver commercial spaces fit for the 21st century but has the potential to attract new occupiers that will encourage wider town centre regeneration too.”
