Lancashire firm wins contract for £5m apartment building

Lancashire based Construction Partnership UK (CPUK Group) has won the contract to build a £5 million apartment scheme in one of the last remaining vacant plots in Chapel Street, Salford.

Altrincham developer Novo Property Group has appointed the West Lancashire-based firm to build the Albert Vaults, an eight storey building with 25 apartments and a commercial unit at the corner of Chapel Street and Spaw Street.

The development, targeted at owner occupiers, is located on the site of the former Albert Vaults pub, close to Salford Central Station and just a short walk into Manchester city centre.

It will help to continue the regeneration of the local area by delivering high quality living accommodation on a challenging site.

The delivery team includes AFL Architects, Curtins, TACE and AA Projects and will be the first project working between Novo and CPUK.

Steve Burke, managing director of CPUK, said: “This is a very restricted site with many logistical challenges; we’ve been working with Novo and the design team for over a year on this scheme – it’ll be great to get it moving at last.

“Chapel Street and the wider Salford area where it borders Manchester is undergoing massive regeneration with a lot of multi-storey residential schemes.

“Albert Vaults offers something a little different for residents; it’s on a more compact scale facing the former Manchester Modernist Society headquarters and the Grade II-listed Chapel Street and Hope United Reform Church.”

This is the second scheme from Novo on Chapel Street in recent years.

Ben Fearns, managing director of Novo Property Group, said “It’s been a huge effort from everyone involved to commence works on this great scheme.

“We are proud to be a part of the regeneration of Chapel Street and excited to deliver another 25 homes to this corner of the City. CPUK has been an excellent construction partner, understanding our proposals and helping turn them into a reality.

“Our shared vision has been supported by Salford Council and now prospective buyers, with 50% of the scheme already reserved”.

Novo is a privately owned and funded development company based in Altrincham, known for boutique and challenging schemes across Cheshire and Manchester.

CPUK Group is one of the North West’s leading independent building and civil engineering companies with an annual turnover of £50 million.

Founded in March 2000, the business operates from purpose-built headquarters at White Moss Business Park in Skelmersdale.

It enjoys an exceptional reputation in the fields of traditional and design and build construction schemes with more than 80% of contracts undertaken on a repeat business basis with blue chip clients.

CPUK Group also includes a civils and remediation division, which means the company is now offering a full in-house construction and development service to clients – from demolition and site remediation to building work – all based at CPUK’s headquarters in Skelmersdale.

CPUK Group has achieved Investors in People Status and is Constructionline and CHAS accredited for major schemes in excess of £5 million.
