A construction company is celebrating contract wins worth more than £600,000 and its appointment to a new framework with Manchester University.
Manchester and Cheshire Construction, based on Oldfield Road, Salford, has been appointed to carry out two projects for property investment and development company Segro.
They are a £450,000 refurbishment of a warehouse at Heywood Distribution Park and £190,000 of external improvements at Longwood Park, Trafford Park.
The business, which employs 40 staff, saw revenues grow from £5.4m to £5.6m in the year to September 30.
It aims to increase turnover to £10m within the next five years.
The firm has, meanwhile, become one of five companies appointed to a slimmed-down university framework which can bid for work between £200,000 and £1m.
Construction director Eugene O'Callaghan said: “This gives us a great opportunity to win work and continue our plans for growth despite the tough economic climate.”
The framework will run for up to four years and is expected to involve contracts worth a total of £65m.
Manchester and Cheshire Construction, which was established by Charles Lowe and John Purcell in 1971, specialises in projects in sectors including education, social housing, industrial, commercial and civil engineering.
