£17m housing hat-trick for CPUK
Some 110 new homes are being built across three sites in the North West by Construction Partnership UK (CPUK) Group after the company won £17m worth of contracts.
CPUK is on site at Hurst Green, near Clitheroe in Lancashire, designing and building 30 new homes for Hillcrest homes on a previously undeveloped site of just above six acres on the eastern edge of the village, close to the world-renowned Stonyhurst College.
It is CPUK’s fifth project with Hillcrest and the £6.4m contract will see 10% of energy usage coming from renewable sources and a new football pitch being built for St Joseph’s RC Primary School.
A mix of 13 detached, four semi-detached, and 13 terraced, three, four and five-bedroom houses at The Warren on Whalley Road will be phased, with project completion in Summer 2019.
The rural homesteads are being built in the heart of the Ribble Valley with a large 200-year-old ash tree as a centrepiece.
Steve Burke, managing director of CPUK, said: “Hurst Green is a popular village in the heart of the Ribble Valley, close to the historic market town of Clitheroe and building the right sort of new homes helps the community, schools and local businesses.”
CPUK’s second housing scheme to move on site in 2018 is 35 miles south in Mossley where the Skelmersdale-based firm is building 36 new homes.
Working for the House Crowd in Altrincham, CPUK is on site on a 4.4-acred vacant plot of land off Micklehurst Road, half a mile from Mossley railway station.
The £5.3m negotiated contract is CPUK’s first with the House Crowd and the project, to be called Buckton View, is expected to be completed by Spring 2019.
Burke said: “This is a challenging site where we will be extensively re-modelling the existing site levels and we need to maintain access through the site for the residents on Micklehurst Road throughout the construction programme.”
CPUK’s house-building expertise are substantial and the finished product – a combination of detached, semi-detached and terraced homes spread over two and three floors – will be built to a very high quality.
CPUK’s third residential project of the year is due on site this month [in March]. It is another contract with a repeat client – Breckside Estates of Prestwich.
The £5.4m contract will see the construction of 44 timber frame homes on redundant farmland off Crescent Road in Crumpsall.
The project is expected to be completed by Autumn 2019.
Burke added: “Negotiating three substantial contracts is a great way to start 2018 and we will continue to grow our order book as the year progresses.
“It is also very satisfying to win repeat business from clients who understand and appreciate the clear benefits to everyone in negotiated agreements. More than 80% of our work is repeat business and negotiated contracts.”
CPUK Group has an annual turnover of £50m.
