Cartergate development one of three shortlisted for award
By Grimsby Telegraph | Posted: 5 Jan 2017
THREE substantial building projects in the Grimsby area feature in the inaugural Lincolnshire Construction & Property Awards shortlist.
The Cartergate development – only fully occupied by law firm Wilkin Chapman this week – is named in the Over £5 million category.
The four-storey £6 million build has been brought forward by North East Lincolnshire Council with partner Engie, and was built by Lincolnshire-based Gelder Group. It has welcomed more than 200 staff and also features a ground floor retail space, yet to be occupied.
In the Under £5 million sector, Auto-Trail's Europarc expansion, a third phase of growth that has united the two previous buildings, and Kenwick Park Spa, which has been built after fire devastated the original, go head-to-head. Gelder was again behind the latter, with Cube3 of North Killingholme and Scunthorpe-based CR Parrott – also involved with Cartergate – behind the motorhome manufacturing facility.
Winners will be revealed at a gala dinner event hosted by television personality Charlie Luxton at Lincoln's Engine Shed on February 7.
Lincolnshire Construction Forum chair Zoe Summerfield said: "We are thrilled at the number of local businesses who have all shown such great interest in being part of the awards. The shortlisting process has been carefully considered by an expert panel who have looked for a wide range of attributes. On behalf of myself and the steering group, I'd like to extend a huge congratulations to all finalists and we look forward to seeing everyone on the big night."
