Other projects also include the Nifco factory Eaglescliffe which was completed in 2011 and the Marks & Spencer store at Faverdale in Darlington three years ago .
Finley Structures managing director Julie Raistrick said : “ The Milburngate contract is a fantastic project for us in terms of its local significance , but it ’ s also one which means a lot to us personally .
“ The Finley family has significant ties to Durham with founder John Finley born and brought up less than 10 miles from the site and Val Finley right on the doorstep from Durham City itself .
“ For us to get the opportunity to work on this hugely important , once-in-ageneration local development – which is changing the skyline of Durham , and will benefit an incredible amount and range of residents and visitors for many years to come is a testament to the strengths and capabilities the business has proven in our now 20 year operation .
“ We are obviously delighted to be working again with Tolent , which itself started as a small , privately owned business back in 1983 .”
Allan Cook , managing director of Arlington Real Estate , said : “ This is an exciting moment for Milburngate as we
are really starting to see phase one take shape with the completion of the steel work of the Premier Inn and the three apartment blocks which will see 153 build-to-rent apartments delivered right in the heart of the city .”
