Jones Bros completes latest work on Cheshire Green Industrial Park project10th Feb 2020

A leading civil engineering contractor has completed work on the latest phase of a 150-acre business park in Cheshire.

Jones Bros Civil Engineering UK was appointed by the developers of the Cheshire Green Industrial Park (Cheshire Green) to design and construct a 1km spine road plus junctions to each of 10 new units.

The family-owned firm has now completed the first phase of the scheme with the laying of a fourth and final surface of roadway.

Project manager Gareth Jones said the team had worked hard to deliver the scheme on time.

He said: “The site has posed many challenges, with special measures having to be taken to address issues surrounding drainage and excavation.

“We’re really pleased to complete this first phase on time while delivering aesthetic improvements.”

Cheshire Green is situated on the A51 between Calveley and Barbridge, and next to Boughey Distribution. The location benefits from its easy connections with key motorways including the M6 and M56 as well as the A55 in North Wales.

Jones Bros also constructed a 33kV substation to accommodate the needs of the industrial units and integrate into the existing power distribution network.

An average of 25 personnel worked on the scheme and in 2018, under an earlier contract, Jones Bros constructed the roundabout which gives access to the £100m industrial park from the A51.

The units, which are ideal for industrial, warehouse, distribution and storage use, will have access to superfast fibre broadband as well as ample parking and a frequent bus service. Legat Owen and Fisher German are marketing the units.

Phillip Posnett, director of Cheshire Green, said: “Our goal is to make Cheshire Green a significant employment destination and completion of this first phase puts us well on our way towards that.

“Working with Jones Bros has always been great for us as they consistently deliver a first class service while being easy to deal with and always on time.”

Established in the 1950s, Jones Bros’ leadership team consists of members of the second and third generations of the founding family. It employs more than 350 people.

The company is currently working on contracts in various sectors including renewable energy, highways, flood and marine defence, and waste management around the UK.

The company runs an award-winning apprenticeship scheme, which has produced more than 40 per cent of its current workforce, with many of its senior managers having started out as apprentices or in a trainee role. It has recruited more than 100 apprentices during the past three years.
