Three in race for Carrington Gateway phase one

The contractor shortlist for phase one of a 725-home development near Manchester has been announced.

Developer Himor revealed Caddick, Eric Wright Group and Seddon will compete for the first package on the redevelopment of a former Shell refinery in Carrington.

The three contractors are battling to deliver a 7.7 ha commercial space known as the Carrington Gateway, with work due to begin this month.

Simon Carves Engineering is already on site carrying out an extensive package of enabling works to prepare the site for future phases.

Carrington Gateway represents the first phase of development at the 680 ha site.

Once complete, the site will feature 725 homes and 1m sq ft of commercial space, with outline planning permission already granted by Trafford Council.

Speaking at the site’s ground-breaking ceremony yesterday, Trafford Council leader Andrew Western (pictured, second left) said: “Future Carrington is an important location for the future of Trafford as the single largest regeneration scheme in the North-west of England.

“It is a testament to the strong partnership built up between the Council and Himor.”
