Barnes wins three contracts

Bury-based building contractor Barnes has secured nearly £5m of projects over the festive period with three new clients.

The company will build the new £2m Talmud Torah Chinuch Norim School in Salford. The four-storey building will accommodate 15,000 sq ft of new teaching accommodation.

Barnes was also appointed by WSR Recycling to build a £1m recycling plant in Ditton Road, Widnes.

Finally, has also won its first job with City West Housing Trust since being appointed to the social landlord's framework in 2013. The £1.7m project will see Barnes build 11 houses, two apartments and a retail unit in Little Hulton, starting on site in February.

Andrew Field, senior business development manager at Barnes, said: "Barnes is entering 2014 with more work secured than at any time since 2009. We look forward to delivering these projects for our new clients whilst continuing to work with existing customers such as FC United, Pennine Acute Hospitals NHS Trust, Wrightington Wigan & Leigh NHS Foundation Trust and ISIS Waterside Regeneration."

Barnes is presently on site with the new stadium for FC United in Moston, a £2m extension to Bowland High School in Clitheroe, the refurbishment and extension of the A&E department at Fairfield Hospital, and Islington Wharf's £5m second phase of apartments and townhouses at Ancoats.

Barnes has offices in Bury, Liverpool, Leeds, Cannock and Newcastle.
