Taoiseach visits Sisk regeneration project in Manchester

An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, TD was in Manchester recently and visited the John Sisk & Son led Circle Square Project, a major urban renewal project in Manchester city centre where he met some of the site team along with representatives of the clients on this major project.

He was met on site by Guy Fowler, MD of John Sisk & Son’s North & Major Projects division, who had earlier taken part in an Enterprise Ireland led roundtable discussion about the potential opportunities for Irish companies in Manchester and the Northwest as part of the Northern Power House initiative.

Among those he also met at the site were Giles Beswick Director of Vita Group and Phil Kemp Chief Executive Officer of Bruntwood SciTech.

Located on the former BBC site on Oxford Road in the heart of Manchester’s innovation district, Circle Square is a £750m joint venture development between Bruntwood SciTech and Vita Group that will see the creation of a pioneering new urban destination that will boast over 1700 new homes, 1.2 million sq. ft. of workspace and over 100,000 sq. ft. of retail and leisure space. Circle Square will also feature the first and largest new city park for generations, providing much needed green space in the city.

John Sisk & Son is active across the BTR and other sectors in London, Birmingham and Manchester as well as a range of civil engineering projects and is due to complete the National Convention Centre in Wales this year
