Bardsley Appointed As Contractor For Blackburn House

We have secured our first contract with Cheshire based Ladson Developments, worth £3.86m, to provide 160 studio apartments for students in Newcastle-under Lyme, Staffordshire.

The contract will see Bardlsey complete the refurbishment and remodelling of the Blackburn House office building, originally built in the 1970s, to create the apartments alongside offices and residents’ gym, to be called Keele House.

Conversion of the building will involve the provision of new windows and over cladding, an internal fit-out to form the 160 apartments and full mechanical and electrical installation.

Procurement Director Ged Rooney, said: “Our first project with Ladson Developments provides concrete evidence of our longstanding and hard-earned reputation for the delivery of high quality residential developments, for the private and public sectors in the North West and Yorkshire spreading to the north Midlands, and we look forward to securing further contracts in the region.”

Work is set to commence in March 2016 with the project due for completion in December.
