Contractor ISG has been appointed by Warrington Borough Council to construct its new £8.5 million Business Incubator.
Construction management of the incubator is being led by Faithful and Gould who are part of the Atkins group. Both contracts were awarded by competitive tender using the North West Construction Hub.
The overall project is being managed by Warrington & Co., Warrington’s partnership for growth.
A ‘Meet the Buyer’ event has already taken place organised by Warrington & Co. along with ISG and Faithful and Gould in order to ensure that local construction companies are able to take advantage of supplier opportunities.
The development site on Dallam Lane in central Warrington has now been cleared. Construction works will commence in August with the project scheduled for completion in June 2015.
The new 50,000sq ft business incubator is to be situated at the heart of Warrington Borough Council’s ambitious £190 million Stadium Quarter project. The facility will provide a contemporary, high-quality workplace specifically aimed at providing prestigious accommodation for start-up businesses on flexible lease terms.
