New Contract Awards for Cruden Construction

Two new contract awards herald further progress on Cruden Construction’s expansion into wider sectors of the North West construction market.

At Northgate, Chester the company has commenced a design and build contract for 150 student residences for Primus Property Group, due for completion in the late summer of 2018. Primus Property Group specialises in developing high class purpose built student accommodation in prime locations within university cities and towns. Their “superior quality accommodation is designed and equipped to meet the modern needs of students – high specification rooms with en-suite bathrooms and kitchens, very fast broadband, 40″ flat screen TVs with HDMI links, modern security, cinema/media rooms, and professional, caring management – all within walking distances of the university and town centres.”

This is Cruden Construction’s 2nd Student Accommodation project, following on from the successful delivery in 2016 of Cityheart’s Northgate Chester development of 117 student residencies.

At Moor Road, Wythenshaw, Cruden Construction is delighted to extend its experience in the North West region’s education sector by commencing construction of the third phase of expansion works to Manchester Health Academy, who are sponsored by Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, with co-sponsorship from Manchester City Council. 

The 59 week, phase 3 works under a traditional building contract, comprise a three storey extension to provide additional teaching spaces especially for mathematics and English teaching.  Following completion, classrooms in the existing buildings will be used for extra science, food technology and art labs.  The new building will house a new main atrium, providing a welcoming entrance and flexible space for both the Academy and community.

Valued at over £10.5m these latest contracts once again demonstrate that our combination of regional focus, technical excellence and market competitiveness is an attractive proposition to North West clients seeking constructors for their schemes.
