Carroll picks up £12.5m former Bardsley scheme

Carroll Build, part of The Sovini Group, has been appointed to complete the £12.5m Albion Mill extra care facility in Blackburn, following the collapse of Bardsley Construction.

The scheme, for Cheshire-based Verum Victum Healthcare is four weeks behind schedule, after Bardsley went into administration just before Christmas.

The project is now due to complete in June, with workers now back on site. The facility will total 109 beds, including 50 extra care apartments, 31 en-suite rooms for intermediate care, 24 dementia apartments and four rehabilitation apartments.

Two four-storey residential blocks will be linked by a three-storey building providing communal areas for use by the residents.

The development will also include provision of landscaping, parking, roadways and footpaths.

VVHC chief executive Roy Kenny said: “We have been able to keep the supply chain in place to support Carroll Build, which is a great help in our efforts to make up for lost time. We’ve worked with the Carroll Build team on a number of developments and they deliver on time and to budget, every time.”
