Caddick Construction has chosen Premier Guarantee to provide warranty inspection services and cover on Placefirst’s Central Street single-family housing (SFH) Build to Rent development in Bolton, Greater Manchester.

Caddick Construction broke ground on the new £35m scheme, which will transform a three-acre brownfield site between the former Beales department store and the River Croal. Central Street will deliver 167 new sustainable homes – a mix of apartments and townhouses.

“Our team are really looking forward to working alongside Caddick Construction in support of this significant development, providing structural insurance cover that will give owners and tenants peace of mind.”

Central Street will include rooftop terraces, gardens, and a network of pedestrian-priority streets – as well as a square and courtyard. It will also include a range of ground floor units to expand the amount of commercial space available to local businesses. The scheme is expected to complete in 2025.

The project team includes architect Levitt Bernstein, landscape designer CW Studio and engineer Alan Johnston Partnership.

“It will be inspiring to follow this project’s progress and witness a town centre brownfield site become a new thriving community of high quality, energy efficient homes and outside spaces for residents.”

The Central Street development forms part of Bolton Council’s £1bn masterplan to transform the town centre – by complementing the historic fabric of the former mill town through a mix of interesting, high-quality buildings.
