CPUK wins £3.6m YMCA contract


Skelmersdale's Construction Partnership UK (CPUK) will build an apartment scheme in North Staffordshire after winning the £3.6m contract tendered by the YMCA.

The development will consist of 46 transitional living apartments, built of behalf of the charity to help young people as they start a career or move to private accommodation. It is expected to be completed in March 2021.

The land is classed as brownfield and the project, a partnership between the YMCA and Homes England, will see the redevelopment of an existing car park and grassed area.

CPUK had already secured £80m of orders for 2020 before this latest win.

Steve Burke, managing director of CPUK, said: “We are winning more work across all sectors, but we are seeing particularly strong demand in residential, both housing and multi-storey apartments.
