Salix Homes awards contracts for multi-million pound investment plan

18 February, 2015

Three construction specialists have been awarded a share of a multi-million pound contract to transform social housing in Salford.

We have announced our three principal contractors to deliver our £22m investment programme over the next two years.

Greater Manchester-based firms Emanuel Whittaker, Seddon and A.Connolly Ltd, have been named as the three main contractors to lead the ambitious improvement programme to 2,200 homes across the city.

As part of the investment scheme 1,100 homes will get new kitchens, 600 will get new bathrooms, 850 will get new windows and 800 will get new doors.

All three firms have been handed an equal share of the contract with Seddon, which has offices based in Bolton, taking the lead on the flagship scheme - the £7m transformation of ageing tower block trio Mulberry, Magnolia and Sycamore Court on Pendleton's Broadwalk Estate.

Oldham-based Emanuel Whittaker is the main contractor for the ambitious revamp at Canon Green Court in Broughton, which will undergo a £2.9m makeover, while A.Connolly Ltd, based in Wigan, will lead the improvements on more than 300 homes on the South Ordsall Estate and the Gerald Road Estate in Charlestown.

The two-year investment programme is the first phase of a £75million project over the next five years made possible thanks to tenants voting to transfer ownership of their homes from Salford City Council to Salix Homes.
