Construction work on 60 new homes at Redrow’s Redbridge Park development in Fazakerley is creating new jobs and apprenticeships.
Work is currently underway at the North Liverpool site on two show homes and a marketing suite with around 75% of staff hailing from the local area.
According to figures from the Home Builders Federation (HBF), each new home built in the UK supports circa 4.3 jobs meaning the 60 new properties at Redbridge Park could provide work for up to 258 people.
Shaun Phoenix, project manager for Redrow in Liverpool, says: “We have already got around 25 people working on site on a daily basis, around three quarters of them from the local area, including the site manager James O’Hanlon.
“One of our joiners is a Liverpool apprentice, and we are in the process of interviewing more apprentices who will start work at Redbridge Park.”
Based on the site of the former Redbridge and Bank View high schools, Redbridge Park will consist of three and four-bedroom detached and semi-detached properties.
