Construction firm secures £1.5m Sheffield works contract

A construction firm has secured a £1.5m enabling works contract on a Sheffield housing development.

Esh Construction has been appointed as the main contractor on the site of the Newstead general housing and older people’s independent living projects in Birley.

The scheme will pave the way for 200 new homes as part of Sheffield City Council’s Birley masterplan.

Steven Garrigan, construction director, Esh, said: “This scheme is among a number of recent contract awards which have boosted our civil engineering portfolio in the Yorkshire region, and we’re delighted to be once again working in partnership with Sheffield City Council.

“This is a great opportunity for Esh to support the wider transformation programme underway on the Newstead site through our culture of employing local, procuring local and engaging local.”

The Newstead site in South East Sheffield is being developed by Sheffield City Council in collaboration with Peak Architects.

Planning approval has been granted for 77 new family homes and a large-scale older people’s independent living project, contributing to the council’s approved Stock Increase Programme.

Patrick Arends, director, Peak Architects, added: “We are extremely excited to be working with Sheffield City Council and Esh in the provision of high-quality, affordable family living and delighted to be playing an integral role in the enhancement of this existing community.”
