Less than twelve months after setting up new offices in the North West, GMI Construction Group has expanded into larger premises following strong growth with a current contract value close to £100 million in the region.
The group has expanded into 3500 sq ft of space in Carvers Warehouse on Dale Street in the Piccadilly Basin area of Manchester city centre. It has agreed terms with landlord Town Centre Securities (TCS) in the building which is the city’s oldest surviving stone-built warehouse.
GMI has increased its North West based team from 15 to 35 following success with major construction projects including the £24m Dakota Deluxe Hotel for Evans Property Group which will handover in Spring 2019, and Burlington House, a 91-apartment residential development again handing over in May 2019 to Belgravia Living Group.
More recently it has secured contracts to build Excelsior Works, a 108-apartment scheme for Mulbury City next to Bridgewater Canal and a 110,000 sq ft distribution unit for Liberty Property Trust and Stoford in Widnes.
Marc Banks, Commercial Director at GMI Construction Group, said, “We are delighted to report great progress with our current portfolio and new project success in the North West. The talent pool in the area is exceptional and we have been able to attract a highly experienced team due to the calibre of our project success. In just twelve months we have created 20 new job opportunities which has more than doubled the regional office team and we anticipate further growth imminently with a number of new contracts in the pipeline.”
