Flurry of new project wins for Jones Melling

Posted 11 February 2019 | 0 Comments

Property and construction advisory firm Jones Melling has landed a series of new project wins across the North West.

The Chester-based firm has been instructed by Special Needs Care Ltd to undertake quantity surveying work for a £4m refurbishment project in Abbey Square within the grounds of Chester Cathedral.

The project will see Special Needs Care expand its current premises within the Grade-2-listed Georgian square to provide specialist boarding accommodation and supported living for people with learning disabilities and autism.

The firm has also been appointed by care specialist Fairhome Group plc to act as employer’s agent on 13 new projects across the country, including two new care schemes in Wallasey, Merseyside.

Manchester-based developer Renaker has asked Jones Melling to act as party wall and neighbourly matters consultant on its new Riverview development and a further tower building within the Greengate development in Salford.

Meanwhile, M7 Real Estate has instructed Jones Melling on a mix of employer’s agent, contract administration and dilapidations work for projects in Preston, Deeside and Salford.

Ken Jones, director of Jones Melling, said: “We’ve had a tremendous start to 2019 with plenty of new instructions coming through for projects across England and Wales. What’s particularly pleasing is we’re being instructed on a wide variety of jobs.

“On top of our core quantity, building surveying and project management work, we’re getting more instructions to act as employer’s agent and contract administrator on larger construction projects. Specialist services like dilapidations and measured surveys are also in growing demand.”

Jones Melling achieved significant financial growth in 2018 after opening two new offices and securing investment from the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund.

The firm, which has 16 staff, recently appointed its first non-exec director Phil Hawthorne to assist in managing the growth of the firm.
