Tameside-based Bardsley Construction has won two contracts totalling £6.85m in St Helens and Liverpool.

The firm is constructing a new primary school and nursery for St Austin's Primary School in St Helens and 40 apartments for Liverpool Housing Trust and the Eldonian community, located off Vauxhall Road, north of the city.

Wayne Bardsley, chairman of Bardsley Construction, said: "We're delighted to be working with such blue chip clients on projects that enhance our reputation and presence on Merseyside and indeed throughout the wider North West.

"Bardsley continues to benefit from its growing reputation for work for the public sector with an emphasis on partnerships with clients including local authorities, education bodies, housing associations and health authorities."

The £3.35m St Austin's Primary School contract is with Tuneside, a Liverpool-based company, and involves the construction of a new single storey primary school and nursery on the site of the former St Austin's Junior School.

The Canalside contract with Eldonians, a community-based housing association, and Liverpool Housing Trust is worth £3.5m.

As reported in Place, Bardsley Construction was also appointed to build a new 24,000 sq ft sports facility at Merchant Taylor's Schools in Crosby. The contract was worth £3.75m to the construction firm.

They firstly put a note through our doors telling us where they wanted no cars to park – no thank you’s or your co-operation is appreciated. Then obviously because we have very limited car parking space people still had to park. So now Bardsley construction have had double yellow lines put in our street – no consultation to the residents no nothing!. They did want more of the street making double yellow lines but the council wouldn’t allow it. Now we have had a note put though our doors telling us about the large plant machinery that will be coming down our little street and that they will let us know when they want us to move our vehicles elsewhere. Do they have a suggestion as to where we can move our vehicles to as they have taken away many of our car parking spaces. Again, no thank you’s for your co-operation etc or sorry for the incovenience. Just a printed off email with wagon spelt wrong! We have to live there and Bardsley Construction do not care about the residents that live in the surrounding area.
