Taylor Woodrow Construction Limited (TWC) is the general construction subsidiary of Taylor Wimpey plc. It is the only UK division of the Group still trading under the Taylor Woodrow brand name.

History

Taylor Woodrow Construction was formed in 1937. [ [http://www.taylorwimpey.com/Home/AboutUs/OurHistory/TaylorWoodrowHistory Taylor Woodrow History] ]

Over the years, Taylor Woodrow Construction has undertaken a number of landmark projects including airports, cathedrals, open - cast coal mining, football stadia, nuclear power stations, railway tunnels, roads, theme parks and wind farms. It has also built Tesco supermarkets since 1987.

Taylor Woodrow has also undertaken projects under the Private Finance Initiative including schools, and more recently, hospitals, until July 2007. It also provides facilities management and specialist engineering consultancy services.

Major projects

Major projects completed by the company have included Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral completed in 1967 [ [http://www.taylorwimpey.com/Home/AboutUs/OurHistory/TaylorWoodrowHistory Taylor Woodrow history] ] , the Channel Tunnel completed in 1994 [ [http://en.structurae.de/structures/data/index.cfm?ID=s0000334 Channel Tunnel on Structurae database] ] , Amersham and Wycombe Hospitals completed in 2000 [ [http://findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_qa4028/is_200108/ai_n8960399/pg_3 Bucks Fizz] ] , the redevelopment of the Royal Albert Hall completed in 2003 [ [http://www.bdp.co.uk/html/news/2003/Royal_Albert_Hall_South_Porch_47.asp Royal Albert Hall South Porch] ] , the Princess Royal University Hospital at Farnborough completed in 2003 [ [http://www.bromleyhospitals.nhs.uk/patients/about-bromley-hospitals-trust/our-hospitals/the-princess-royal-university-hospital/fact-sheet/ Bromley Hospitals NHS Trust] ] , the National Assembly for Wales at Cardiff Bay completed in 2006 [ [http://www.assemblywales.org/sen-home/sen-projecthistory/sen-project-history-subpage/sen-project-history-2009 National Assembly for Wales Project History] ] and the King's Cross Western Ticketing Hall completed in 2006 [ [http://www.arup.com/unitedkingdom/newsitem.cfm?pageid=8497 New Western Ticket Hall opens] ] .

Another notable development by Taylor Woodrow is the Riverside Stadium on Teesside, which was built in 1995 as the stadium of Middlesbrough Football Club [ [http://www.mfc.premiumtv.co.uk/page/Stadium/0,,1,00.html Boro Stadium History] ] . At the time it was the first new stadium for an English top division football club since Manchester City's Maine Road in 1923, and it proved so successful that over the next 11 years no less than six top division clubs have built new stadiums and a seventh club is in the early stages of following suit.
