Horbury Group clinches new Manchester office contract

A South Yorkshire construction specialist has secured a cross-Pennine contract worth more than 1 million on Manchester's premier office development.

Rotherham based Horbury Group has clinched a new contract worth more than 370,000 on Manchester's Piccadilly Place development, a key project in the centre of the city.

Titan Ceilings, one of nine companies that make up the Horbury Group, has been appointed by Carillion PLC, and will install metal suspended ceilings and bulkheads in the 110,000 square foot Four Piccadilly Place.

Titan has previously completed work on Three Piccadilly Place in the development to fit suspended ceilings and bulkheads to this 190,000 square foot of Grade A sustainable office accommodation in a contract worth 650,000.

Piccadilly Place is a mixed-use development, set to transform the Piccadilly area of Manchester where the city's busiest transport interchange is located. The development is part of the 1.2 billion investment in the area, due to be completed by 2010.

Trevor Wragg, managing director of the Horbury Group, said: "Manchester is currently experiencing a huge regeneration, with a number of modern accommodation, office space and retail unit developments.

"The Piccadilly Place development in the city centre is a key project to transforming Manchester and we are thrilled to be involved in such a high profile project to add to our increasing portfolio of private sector schemes."

The site at Piccadilly Place is divided into two by the Metrolink tramway. The northern area includes One Piccadilly Place, which will be developed into a 285 bed hotel and Two Piccadilly Place, which will provide 55,000 square feet of Grade A office space.

The southern section of the development comprises Three to Six Piccadilly Place, totalling 300,000 square feet of premium quality offices and Seven Piccadilly Place, which is a 117 unit apartment block.

The Horbury Group also recently secured a number of public sector contracts, winning major school and hospital work across the UK, to compliment its existing portfolio of private sector clients throughout the country.
