Growth leads to NW office relocation for contractor

Levens House

Specialist contractor, Taziker, has relocated its support services office to new premises in Chorley, Lancashire.

Around 50 current staff will eventually move into the building, subject to coronavirus guidelines, following a fit-out period over the past few months.

The premises give Taziker the opportunity to further invest in people with room to accommodate 80 employees when all restrictions are lifted.

Taziker has moved from its former Horwich offices to Levens House, which is located on Ackhurst Business Park, Foxhole Road.

The detached 6,020 sq ft building will enable key functions to operate under one roof, as well as provide room for future growth.

The move comes on the back of a period of sustained growth, continued investment from majority owner Freshstream, successful project awards and an increase in employee numbers.

With people based around the country and working on a number of sites from seven other Tazkier offices, this central location provides the business with a strong core for the dupport services team.

Chief executive, Steve Corcoran, said: “2020 has been a challenging year for business, but I’m pleased to state one of continued progress for our company.

“We are committed to further growing the business over the coming years, and our move into new, modern premises in Chorley enables us to fulfil this ambition and support our people, who, despite the impact of COVID-19, have done a tremendous job undertaking critical infrastructure projects as essential workers.”

He added: “I’m incredibly proud to be a part of this business and look forward to welcoming all our people into the new support services offices when safe to do so.”

Taziker undertakes key maintenance, refurbishment and replacement works to critical infrastructure throughout the UK.

The company has traded since 1969, working on iconic structures such as Royal Albert Bridge, Tay Bridge, Iron Bridge and Jodrell Bank radio telescope in Cheshire.

Recent work also includes complex structures such as the Big One rollercoaster at Blackpool Pleasure Beach, Lancashire, and, in June 2020, the company was awarded a major refurbishment project at Bristol Temple Meads railway station.
