CPUK wins £12m Salford apartments tender

Skelmersdale-based Construction Partnership UK Group has been selected to build 86 high specification apartments in Manchester following a competitive tender.

The £12m project will include roof terraces, private balconies in the 1, 2 and 3 bedroom apartments, a gym, and a residents’ lounge. It will be located by the River Irwell in Salford.

CPUK took part in a two-stage tender for the contract with Forshaw Land & Property Group, a Bolton-based developer with a strong track record for building quality residential developments across the region. It is the second time the companies have worked together, the first saw the pair complete 179 units in Huddersfield.

CPUK recently completed a £2.3m project to transform redundant council offices in Chorlton for Manchester developer, Retail Property Investments, bringing the 1960s building in Manchester Road back to life with a mixed use scheme of three retail units and 22 apartments.

Steve Burke, manging director of CPUK, said: “We have negotiated and won several high-quality residential builds during the past three years in Manchester and Salford.

“We have a lot of experience working on difficult sites and this project fits well with our expertise in residential new builds.”
