Caddick Construction (North West) has won a £4.3m contract to build a 68,000 sq ft. distribution warehouse at Trafford Park, Manchester, with work already underway on the Richmond Road scheme.

The distribution warehouse unit will be 14.5m high to the parapet and will include two floors of offices, together with a service yard, car parking and landscaped areas. The build contract also covers all drainage and external services.

Caddick Construction has a long history of involvement at Trafford Park and the surrounding area having delivered The Williams Group £41m flagship automotive retail centre at TraffordCity, and the international headquarters for Regatta on Mercury Way.

Ian Guildford, Contracts Manager at Caddick Construction (NW), said: “Trafford Park continues to go from strength to strength and its popularity as a logistical hotspot for the North West shows no sign of abating. We are delighted to be working at Trafford Park once again and delivering another large high quality, industrial unit to help meet growing market demand from the logistics sector.”

Architect for the build is Liverpool-based Brock Carmichael, with engineering support from Healey Consulting. Project Managers are Black Cat Building Consultancy Limited.
