Michael Hunt

Allenbuild has secured three projects in Merseyside and one in North Wales worth a total of £16m.

Steve Kelly, managing director of Allenbuild North West, said: "In this very competitive environment I am delighted that Allenbuild continues to deliver value for money to the public and private sectors. These schemes will enable us to continue to expand our track record in housing, education and healthcare, as well as providing security for our employees and suppliers."

In Kensington, Liverpool, Allenbuild has been appointed preferred contractor for the £5.2m design and construction of an urban regeneration scheme on the site of the Silver Blades Ice Rink.

The contract is for developer CTP, which are working in partnership with Liverpool City Council and Kensington Regeneration.

The project comprises a community fire station for Merseyside Fire & Rescue, twenty-four new build residential apartments and the conversion of a listed building to provide a further four apartments for Riverside Housing Association, plus retail space including a store for Iceland.

Work on the two and three-storey corner site development commences in late August and is due completion at the same time next year.

Allenbuild has also just started the first phase of the Craven Street/Paterson Street Facelift Scheme for Wirral Council, involving external upgrades to 117 privately owned residential properties.

In St Helens, Allenbuild has won a £3.8m partnering contract with the local council to construct a new education facility within the secure perimeter of Red Bank Community Home in Newton le Willows.

Red Bank Community Home is a secure residential home for young people between the ages of ten and seventeen years. Due to working within the secure area, the project will require close liaison with staff during the construction which is expected to be completed in May 2010.

Elsewhere, Allenbuild is just commencing the design and build contract for another new Medical Resource Centre in Connah's Quay, North Wales for Haven Health.

The project includes site clearance of the old market site followed by the construction of the three-storey Centre building and separate satellite building.

It will bring together three local GP practices and a North Wales NHS Trust clinic and the facility will also provide a focus for training and support for other providers of health and social care in the area.

Completion is due to be in May next year.
