CGC completes latest project south of the border as iconic Bradford building comes back to life
Paisley-vased CGC has completed the task of giving an iconic West Yorkshire building a new lease of life.
The landmark Wardley House in Bradford city centre has undergone a massive £1.5 million refurbishment to turn it into showpiece student accommodation.
The building – not far from the University of Bradford and Bradford College – will shortly receive its final new addition in the form of illumination to its striking facade.
The completion of this latest job comes after CGC revealed it is heading for £14 million turnover in 2016 and is rolling out new offices across Britain.
The development follows a considerable increase in work from northern England resulting in a new office to be opened soon in Preston, Lancashire.
Further offices are in the process of either opening or have opened in Ayr and Linwood. CGC has its head office in Paisley, Renfrewshire.
Such is the scale of business being won by CGC that the company is considering opening further offices in Liverpool and Bradford itself.
CGC’s Contracts Director Ronnie McDowell said: “The Wardley House project was completed on time and provides excellent quality accommodation for students. We are pleased to have been chosen to undertake this work.
“There is no doubt that Wardley House is a landmark Bradford building and its refurbishment undoubtedly enhances the level of accommodation for students available in this great city.”
Meanwhile, CGC has also completed a significant structural job on a railway viaduct near Newcastle.
Significantly, the job was completed on budget and two weeks ahead of schedule.
