Liverpool developer to take more construction work in-house
The developer behind Liverpool’s £200m New Chinatown project is planning to take more construction work in-house.
New Chinatown is a planned £200m development
North Point Global is set to start on site next month transforming the city’s Chinatown area.
The developer also has a string of schemes in the pipeline in Liverpool and Manchester.
Chairman David Choules said: “We are looking to broaden the team and ensure that we have the best partners engaged on each and every one of our projects.
“Moving forward we will be taking some of our construction projects in-house so we can control every aspect of cost and delivery.
“But we will also be bringing in major international construction partners where and when required.
“The focus is 100% on delivery so we will be flexible with every project being guided by our commitments to our investors.”
North Point has previously used Warrington based contractor PHD1 on some of its schemes.
PHD1 is currently facing a winding-up order and was sacked by developer Pinnacle Group Companies last week following claims of “significant performance issues and delays.”
North Point schemes – including the New Chinatown site – are currently included under the “Our Projects” section of a new contractor called the Bilt Group which was incorporated last month.
