Triton bags biggest shed job yet

North of England builder Triton Construction has clinched its biggest shed project to date for a site in Manchester.

The 185,000 sq ft speculative manufacturing and distribution facility for Patrick Properties is to go up at a 10-acre site in Middleton

Stakehill 185 was formerly a 190,000 sq ft distribution centre for Sainsbury’s and was acquired by Patrick Properties in 2009.

Triton Construction has already started ground preparation works on site.

Construction is expected to be complete by April 2022

Paul Clarkson, Managing Director at Triton Construction, said: “We are delighted to be awarded this contract with Patrick Properties which places us as a strong contender in the ‘big sheds’ delivery market.

“We are enjoying considerable growth in the North West with new contracts including numerous new facilities for self-storage business, SureStore, the second phase of Mersey Reach and a new warehouse for Tech Folien.

“We continue to recruit new team members as we pursue our target to increased turnover by beyond £60 million this financial year.”

Stakehill 185 is being delivered to standards to achieve BREEAM ‘very good’ rating.

Christian Thorpe, Director at Patrick Properties, said, “We are pleased to be working with Triton Construction on this important project which will bring about a step change in our development plans for the North-West.”
