Leading North West building firm Construction Partnership UK (CPUK) begins 2019 with its strongest ever order book.
For the first time in its 18 year history, the Lancashire firm has broken the £100 million total contract value barrier.
CPUK’s order book stands at £98 million across a dozen live projects – eight of which are repeat, negotiated business from previous clients.
Three further jobs are about to begin on site taking the order book past the £100 million barrier.
The 12 projects already on site in Greater Manchester, Merseyside, Lancashire, Cheshire, and the Midlands have contract values ranging from £25 million down to £1.9 million.
The workload is across all sectors with a heavy emphasis on the residential sector reflecting the need for thousands of new homes across the North West. It includes family homes in the Ribble Valley, satellite towns in Greater Manchester and major apartment schemes in city centres such as Salford, Liverpool and Chester.
Steve Burke, managing director of CPUK, said: “We’re very happy with our current workload and forward pipeline.
“We target projects we are interested in and we will only commit to a project if we believe we can successfully deliver the scheme whilst enhancing our reputation and maintaining profitability.
“The great news is that more than 80% of our current workload is negotiated and most of the projects in our order book are repeat business from long-standing clients, which has been a long term goal for this company.
“As the company has grown, we are being invited into larger schemes and are finding that many of our customers are attracted to companies of our size rather than the Tier 1 contractors.
“Clients are coming to us based on our reputation for customer service, integrity and they like the straightforward way we conduct our business with them – they get a quicker response and a better, more caring service from contractors like CPUK.”
Working with and for CPUK will be a pleasure!
