Ambitious North West independent construction group Pinington has won the contract to build a new circa £3.5 million Clubhouse for Kendal Hornets Rugby Union Club.
The Lancaster-headquartered company will commence work on-site early August 2016, to delivering the purpose-built Clubhouse, sports and training facilities on Shap Road in the South Cumbrian town.
Kendal, promoted to the National League this season, is looking to move into its prestigious new home next summer.
Cheshire based and family owned Morbaine Limited are responsible for the relocation development which paves the way for the creation of a new 83,000 sq ft Sainsbury’s supermarket on the club’s old ground.
It is the latest in a line of high-profile awards for Pinington, which is seeing sustained growth in its contract pipeline for 2016/2017.
The group continues to develop its integrated construction and mechanical and electrical services offering its expertise in the education, healthcare, residential and commercial sectors.
Pinington has several further projects awaiting approval and is looking to build on key framework partnerships, which are playing a pivotal role in the company’s strategic growth plans. The family-owned firm was appointed on two new North West agreements earlier this year.
Mark Ayrton, managing director of Pinington, said: “The Kendal rugby club development is another major North West contract for the group and is a positive indication that our commitment to strategic growth is continuing to pay off across the business.
“We’re looking forward to creating a modern, striking new home for Kendal Hornets as the club pushes for more success both on and off the field.
“The project will deliver outstanding purpose-built training facilities to help the community-focused club develop the players of the future.”
He added: “As a company we are seeing success in both traditional and long-term framework contracts.
“The market continues to be highly competitive, but our order book continues to grow with work in a range of sectors, including education and commercial. We’ve also been working on a number of private residential schemes.”
Other high-profile projects awarded to Pinington this year include new Engineering Centre facility for Blackpool and Fylde College, Food & Farm Innovation Technology centre phase 1 for Myerscough College and a warehouse development for haulage group Surefreight.
In March this year, Pinington was appointed on a four-year Cumbria County Council framework and extended its partnership with Lancashire County Council by successfully being appointed on three separate four-year agreements.
