£12M CONTRACT AWARDED TO CPUK TO BUILD RIVERFRONT APARTMENTS
Skelmersdale-based Construction Partnership UK Group (CPUK) has won a £12m contract to build a riverfront apartment scheme in Salford.
The firm took part in a two-stage tender for the contract with Bolton based developer Forshaw Land & Property Group and is now set to build The Waterhouse, which will feature 86 high spec apartments off Worrall St on the Salford side of the River Irwell.
The new homes will feature roof terraces, private balconies and access to a gym, cycle storage and optional car parking spaces.
Some of the apartments, available to buy off plan, are duplexes.
Steve Burke, managing director of CPUK, said:
“We have negotiated and won several high-quality residential builds during the past three years in Manchester and Salford.
“We have a lot of experience working on difficult sites and this project fits well with our expertise in residential new builds.
“This is our second scheme with Forshaw following on from the successful 179 unit Huddersfield student accommodation development.
“Forshaw is a developer that takes unloved land and forgotten buildings and turns them into the unique spaces that bring land back to life.”
The 18-month contract will see the CPUK team working out of a site office 250 metres from the main construction site.
The brick façade will be complemented by green glazed brick slips to the rear walls of the balconies and zinc cladding at roof level.
CPUK recently completed a £2.3m project to transform redundant council offices in Chorlton for Manchester developer, Retail Property Investments, bringing the 1960s building in Manchester Road back to life with a mixed-use scheme of three retail units and 22 apartments.
The £4m Albert Vaults in Chapel Street, Salford, is due for completion this Autumn, delivering an eight-storey building with 25 apartments and a commercial unit on the site of the former Albert Vaults pub for Novo Property Group.
CPUK has an order book of £98m and annual turnover of £60m.
Founded in March 2000, the business operates from purpose-built headquarters at White Moss Business Park in Skelmersdale.
