Work starts on £41m automotive retail centre in Greater Manchester

Caddick Construction has commenced work on a new £41 million automotive retail centre in Greater Manchester this week.

The firm has been awarded the contract to build Williams Group’s three-storey BMW showroom, two-storey Jaguar Land Rover showroom and single-storey MINI showroom on a 14.3-acre TraffordCity plot.

The project, located opposite EventCity and next to John Lewis at Intu Trafford Centre, is expected to reach completion in late summer 2019.

Designed by Wilmslow-based architect practice Taylor Design, the scheme forms part of the wider TraffordCity redevelopment by Peel Land and Property to create a further 3.4m sq ft of retail, leisure and commercial space.

Ian Threadgold, North West construction manager at Caddick Construction, says: “We’re extremely proud of our long association with Manchester, where we are currently working on the landmark 34-storey Angel Gardens project in the city centre. Undertaking this major development enables us to continue contributing to its future prosperity by engaging with local suppliers as well as creating local job opportunities.”
