A MILLION pound Porsche contract has been taken on by Caddick Construction.

Caddick has been appointed to design and construct a new £5m Porsche centre, complete with workshops and MOT testing facility in Carnforth.

Appointed by Porsche franchise holders Parker & Parker Limited (P&P), work has just begun on the new Porsche Centre South Lakes site, north of Kellet Road, Carnforth, with easy access to the M6. The new centre and all external works are due to be completed in the summer of 2021.

Caddick Contract Project Manager Derek Billows said: “This is a very exciting project and the team are focused on delivering an exceptional showroom and other facilities that will be a fitting home for such this aspirational car brand.”

This multi-million-pound project signals the continued long-term investment and strengthening position of the German luxury sports car brand in the north west.

Ian Parker, director of Porsche Centre South Lakes, added: “Caddick Construction has a long track record working with Porsche franchises across the North and we believe their quality and attention to detail mirrors our own exceptionally high standards.

“This purpose-built centre ensures we can offer a first-class service in first-class surroundings, something our clients have come to expect over the years from us and Porsche in this region.”

Caddick Construction Ltd is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Caddick Group Plc.

Founded in 1979 the Caddrick has evolved into the company structure it is today through carefully controlled development and expansion over the years.

In 2019, Caddick Construction completed a £2.5m extension and refurbishment of the Porsche Sales and Service Centre on the Silverlink Estate at Wallsend on behalf of JCT600 Ltd.

The new Carnforth showroom and facilities encompasses 1618²m in total and will have the capacity to display the full range of the luxury car brand.

The project has been met with a positive reception from the local council.

The state-of-the-art centre will be completed with meeting rooms and employee facilities.
