Work set to start on £6m Tombola HQ development by Brims Construction

Construction is set to start on the new headquarters for Europe’s biggest online bingo operator in Sunderland following the appointment of contractor, Brims Construction. 

The three-storey building will be built on the banks of the Wear next to Tombola's current offices, the Rose Line Building, at the city's Wylam Wharf. Brims Construction will start to build the new offices early in 2017, and it is expected to take a year to complete.

Phil Cronin, founder and managing director of Tombola, said: “We are delighted to award Brims the construction contract for our new HQ in Sunderland. 

"It was a tough tender process but Brims had in the edge in areas that really mattered to us.”

Richard Wood, director of Brims, added: “Projects of this type don't come along very often. 

"It's more than just a normal office. It has a unique design and the proposed finishes are extremely high both inside and out. 

"It's great to see Tombola investing in such a high-quality development in Sunderland and we can't wait to get things underway for them."
