Fast start for CCL Facades after demise of Speedclad

The biggest new deal is at One City Park, for the design, supply, and installation of the external façade, including the glazing and rain-screen cladding at the Bradford city centre scheme.

CCL Facades has also been appointed as the preferred bidder on a number of remediation schemes in Leeds city centre under the BSF Programme.

The deals come only a matter of weeks since the initial 10-strong management and design team were transferred from Speedclad to the newly formed CCL Facades, led by Managing Director Tony Blake.

Blake said: “It has been a turbulent year for the team, but we are firmly focused on the future, which is already looking incredibly exciting even after such a short space of time as part of the Caddick Construction Group.

“We really do feel we have a winning combination. We’re able to offer clients the financial strength and stability with the Caddick Construction Group behind us, but with all the expertise firmly embedded within an independent Company, CCL Facades.

“It is the best of both worlds for clients, strengthened further when you add our own certified products such as Speedpanel, A2 Rated Spandrel panels into the equation.”

CCL is also negotiating to act as specialist façade contractor to provide design, supply, and installation of rainscreen systems and curtain walling facades for new buildings and refurbishment projects.

The company is now also set up to offer services, acting as principal or specialist contractor, for the replacement of cladding and other facades remediation works.

Blake added: “The façade sector market is a difficult one to work within because of the huge obligations that are placed on specialists in terms of delivery, insurance, supply chain, compliance, etc.

“We now have an offering that not only meets all those obligations but it’s also managed by a team with many decades of experience between them. We believe we are well placed to meet the needs of our clients and are very excited about the future.”

Paul Dodsworth, Caddick Construction Group Managing Director, said: “We are confident that the unique offering of CCL Facades and Speedpanel, supported by the financial strength of Caddick Construction, will allow the business to thrive under the stewardship of Tony and the team. In today’s turbulent world having confidence in a financially strong façade contractor will provide real peace of mind in a competitive market.”
