Demolition begins ahead of Carrington Village development

Demolition work under way

Demolition work has begun at Carrington Business Park, leading to a regeneration aimed at bringing new jobs and homes for the region.

Warrington-based Wain Estates is demolishing the redundant 1950’s buildings that were vacated last year.

The expansive site, which extends to 19 acres, is now being cleared in preparation for the next phase of Carrington Village.

A detailed application for 10 state-of-the-art, energy efficient buildings, that would provide 268,000 sq ft of employment space, has been submitted for the southern portion of the site, with the northern portion forming part of ‘The Meadow’ which has outline planning permission for in the region of 160 homes to be delivered by Anwyl Homes.

Wain Estates development managing director, Jack Brister, said: “We are keen to progress this next phase of the Carrington Village development and are working with our contractors and wider team on demolition and preparatory works.

“We are liaising closely with the council and the parish council to ensure any disruption is kept to a minimum.”

Demolition experts Squibb Group has been appointed to carry out the works which include:

  • Erecting hoarding and fencing to secure the site
  • Stripping out of all non-structural items within the buildings
  • Demolition of the buildings to ground floor slab level
  • Removal of floor slabs and foundations
  • Crushing and stockpiling of suitable materials for recycling/reuse in future development

Jack added: “Part of the contract is ensuring we are a good neighbour – measures are in place to minimise any disruption to local residents and we aim to recycle and reuse as much material as possible.

“Detailed discussions are ongoing with Trafford Council about this exciting project and we continue to work with them to bring forward these proposals.”
