£1.2M Contract Award Builds Conlon’s Merseyside Portfolio

April 13, 2012 - News

Conlon Construction has further strengthened its portfolio of projects in Merseyside with the award of a contract to build a new leisure centre in Prescot, on behalf of Knowsley Council, bringing the total to £17m of recent projects in the county.

Since 2010, the team at Conlon have completed the £3.3m Faith Primary School in Everton, for the Archdiocese of Liverpool, Diocese of Liverpool and Liverpool City Council and the £4.2m St Michaels and All Angels school in Kirkby, for the RC Archdiocese of Liverpool, as well as three projects for Sefton Council: the new £5.1m Netherton Activity Centre, £1.65m Thornton SEN College and a £1.6m extension at Davenhill Primary School.

The £1.2m new-build Prescot leisure Centre will feature a 500 sq m single storey centre with fitness suite, dance studio, changing areas, bar and kitchen.  One of the existing outdoor football pitches will be converted to an all-weather five-a-side complex.

Construction director at Conlon Construction, Michael Conlon, commented: “We are delighted to have been appointed to deliver another substantial project in Merseyside for a new client to us, Knowsley Council, and are looking forward to starting on site.

We are very proud of the work we have completed in the county and our work at Faith School and on other projects has seen us win and be nominated for a number of regional awards.  We like to get involved in community projects close to our sites whenever possible and look forward to continuing this with further work in the area in the near future.

Andrew McCormick, service director for Knowsley Council’s Wellbeing Services, added:

This new leisure centre is part of a multi million pound project to replace and upgrade leisure facilities right across the borough. We’re determined to create the very best facilities for local people.
