£1.5 million development starts in St Helens

The North-West office of family run business, Caddick Construction, has secured a £1.5million design and build contract to deliver a commercial development in St Helens.

The 20,000 sq ft industrial unit will be built on behalf of client, Network Space, at its successful Mere Grange development.
Ian Threadgold, Head of Caddick Construction’s North West office, said: “Following the success of the first two phases of development at Mere Grange, the team are looking forward to starting on site delivering a further industrial unit.

“We continue to work closely with Network Space, DLA Architects and structural engineers White Young Green and will ensure another high quality building, designed and fit-out to the new tenant’s specification.”

This is the third phase of development Caddick will have delivered for Network Space at Mere Grange.

The first £7million speculative scheme provided 90,500 sq ft of industrial space providing four self-contained units and was immediately followed by the construction of a 51,800 sq ft unit, which Network Space pre-let to specialist laundry firm Synergy LMS.

The team has now secured the third contract and commence work this month, with completion expected before the end of the year.

Mere Grange sits adjacent to the St Helens Linkway and is within a five-minute drive of Junction 7 of the M62 facilitating easy access to the M6 and Manchester and Liverpool.

Once complete the development will have delivered 162,000 sq ft of high quality commercial premises within two-years.
Stephen Barnes, Managing Director (Development) at Network Space, said: “Given the great success and quality of the previous two phases, we are delighted to be working with Caddick again to deliver the third and final phase of development at our Mere Grange site.

“It has been a fantastic effort to date from all parties involved and the high calibre tenants we have attracted to the site to date is a testament to the quality of the scheme.”
Mere Grange is being developed in association with Homes England, St Helens Council and Liverpool City Region Combined Regional Authority.

CBRE and B8 are acting as joint agents for Network Space on the Mere Grange development and WCP Associates are part of the professional team.
