FAB FOUR LAUNCH IN BOLTON
Following on from its recent sales success, conversion specialist PJ Livesey is giving the market what it wants and launching four more show apartments at its flagship Manchester development, The Cottonworks in Bolton.

The one- and two-bedroom, spacious apartments are expected to uphold the design trend demonstrated so far at this elegant development and provide a show of cutting edge interior design and high style.

Situated on the second floor, these apartments will showcase the properties on this level which have not yet been viewed. Visitors who have already seen the existing show apartments on the ground and first floors are expected to make-up a large proportion of the turn out on the last bank holiday weekend in August as they return for the latest reveal.

PJ Livesey has put together some offers which will be exclusive to those reserving at the launch weekend. They include complimentary upgrades on kitchen and bathroom suites, paid stamp duty and £1,000 cash back and free fitted flooring throughout.

The Cottonworks has been one of the company's most successful mill developments since the release of its first phase earlier this year. The 1926 Grade II listed building - the last mill to be built in the area - was designed and built for Sir John Holden by Bradshaw, Gas and Hope and has retained a number of distinctive architectural features.

PJ Livesey has been responsible for the restoration and development of some of the UK's most prestigious addresses over the last 30 years and retains a reputation for a passionate and exacting approach to the refurbishment of all its developments. The interiors have become as great a talking point as the buildings themselves in recent years with visitor rates rising dramatically across all developments from the point of show home launch.

Sales manager, Colette Gannon comments: "Show homes always generate increased interest. We have had a record number of visitors to The Cottonworks in the last couple of months as word of mouth regarding our ground- and first-floor apartments has spread and we're expecting a large turnout for the launch weekend given the overall popularity of the development."

Prices for one-bedroom apartments at The Cottonworks currently start at £114,950, increasing to just £149,950 for a two-bed. For further information on The Cottonworks, please call 01204 305012 (open daily from 10.00 am to 5.00 pm) or 0800 7830259 (freephone).

PJ LIVESEY MOVES TO COUNTER INTEREST RATES IN HUDDERSFIELD

Entrepreneur expands business with Beachcroft partnership
Gary Taylor, the entrepreneur from Lymm who turned down £200,000 from the millionaires in the Dragons' Den, is working with commercial law firm Beachcroft to help meet ambitious growth plans for his truck wash company.

Since Gary appeared on the television show last year, Warrington-based Alpine Cleaning has gone from strength to strength. The company installs 'wash stations' at motorway services for cleaning HGVs, and recently merged with the LPW group.

Building on a four-year relationship, technology partner Pauline Cowie is now advising Gary on franchise agreements for new truck wash sites across the UK.

"I contacted LPW as I was looking to grow the business at a much quicker rate," said Gary. "The merger has been a great success and we have already opened 20 new sites at service stations up and down the country. Our target is 40 by the end of this year, so we are well on the way to achieving this.

"Our aim is to organise a management franchise at every site and Pauline is playing a vital role in ensuring these agreements are developed quickly and efficiently. Long term, I am also planning to set up a separate franchise recruitment company and Beachcroft will be a key link in this development."

Pauline commented: "It's fantastic to have helped play a part in Gary's success. I've been advising him on all stages of the company's expansion and suggested that he went on Dragons' Den. As recognised by 'the dragons' it's a great idea and I'm looking forward to supporting Gary with his future growth plans and business ideas."

Manchester-based Pauline Cowie specialises in national and international franchising. She also provides advice on commercial contracts, outsourcing, information technology, and e-commerce.

Gary has recently been filmed for a follow up programme to the Dragons' Den which is due to be broadcast at the end of this month.

EIC TAKES AN ENCORE FOR THE RSC
Following on from the completion of work on the foyers and back of house areas of the Royal Shakespeare Company's The Courtyard Theatre, winner of a RIBA national award, last year, EIC is now on course to handover work on the Company's offices at the end of July.

The 12-week, fast-track project involves the installation of mechanical and electrical services to the Union Club - the RSC's old social club on Chapel Lane - and to a new-build annex designed to give the Company more commercial space.

Last year, the mechanical and electrical national expert assisted with the refurbishment and conversion of the RSC's small studio theatre, to create The Courtyard Theatre, a temporary 1000-seat venue. This latest piece of work has enabled EIC to work on a new-build property alongside an existing listed building.

Nigel Le Marechal, joint managing director of EIC, comments: "The team has paid particular care and attention to the old building as it is part of Stratford's heritage and, as a listed site, demands expert and meticulous handling. We are building up a strong portfolio of commercial work nationwide, however it is nice to be in Stratford doing it. Most of the team in the Midlands have been raised in or around Stratford and are familiar with the work of the RSC. We're delighted to be working for the Company and the main contractor, Leadbitter Construction, once again."

NEW TERCA TEAM GETS GREEN LIGHT
Underlining its commitment to sustainable building solutions, Terca has
formed a specialist team responsible for strengthening the company's
green credentials and meeting customers' future environmental
objectives.

The new 'sustainability group' will develop a range of initiatives aimed
at further minimising Terca's impact on the environment and increasing
energy efficiency. One of the team's key objectives will be to develop a
range of bricks made using materials from alternative, recycled and
secondary sources (MARSS).

"Forming the sustainability group ensures we can proactively develop our
'green strategy," said Anthony Wood, Terca's environmental manager and
leader of the sustainability group. "By continuously reviewing and
implementing new initiatives, we believe we can play a critical role in
helping to deliver the sustainable communities and built environment of
the future.

"Developing more eco-friendly bricks is just one of our aims. We will
also be working closely with our nine manufacturing plants to further
improve their environmental strategies and performance. For example, we
are going to implement 'green brick awards' that will recognise
exceptional environmental management by factory teams. Michael Driver,
director of the Brick Development Association, will help to judge the
awards with assistance from Terca's technical experts. The winning team
will receive a cash donation for a local environmental charity of their
choice."

To provide customers with further information on its key environmental
initiatives, Terca has also produced a 'sustainability brochure', which
is available to download from www.wienerberger.co.uk

Bristol Proves Fertile Ground for Venture Capital Providers
Despite being one of the UK's largest financial centres, Bristol has been poorly served historically by venture capital funding, with the notable exception of the Regional Development Agency. Now, however, a UK listed investment bank with US$2.6 billion in funds under management is focusing its attention on the South West, seeking to guide the local business community through the whys and wherefores of VC finance.

Speaking at a reception hosted by local commercial law firm, Beachcroft LLP, at Bristol Zoo, managing director of Shore Capital, Graham Shore said: "Substantial funding continues to be available from venture capital trusts and the scope for structuring deals that take advantage of enterprise tax incentives is broader than people might think. We manage a number of funds, including the venture capital trusts that recently invested in the Cadbury House Hotel and Country Club in Congresbury. We believe that the South West has enormous scope for us as a source of high quality investments - and we are actively engaging with the local business community to drive this forward."

Over the past year, Shore Capital has worked closely with Beachcroft's corporate finance team in Bristol on a number of projects, including the launch of the £75m pre-IPO fund, St Peter Port Capital Limited, on the AIM market.

"There has recently been some scepticism in the region about the quality of opportunities for venture capital trust investment," adds John Williams, head of corporate at Beachcroft, Bristol. "Shore Capital's presence indicates that for those prepared to engage properly and to flush out the premium deals, the market is very much still alive".

KINGSLEY PARK PUTS ON A SHOW
PJ Livesey has opened three show apartments at its exclusive Frodsham development on the edge of Delamere Forest, Kingsley Park. Having sold the first phase of apartments without a formal launch, the conversion specialist is now offering all interested parties the opportunity to view some of the fruits of its team's extensive and painstaking labour.

The two-bedroom show apartments demonstrate that these glorious hospital buildings (once known as Crossley Hospital East) are now ready to be populated by appreciative residents who have been won over by the breathtaking, scenic location and the history that is imbued in this development.

Delamere Forest is renowned as a local beauty spot and Kingsley Park looks set to become its focal point as more and more visitors flock to see how buildings, heavily defined by the past and reminiscent of a bygone era, can be transformed to embrace both the old and new to cater to the demands of modern, luxury living.

The current show apartments are situated in the main Hall however work is also underway, and at various stages of completion, across the whole of the development including what was once the nurses' accommodation, the old pump house and the hospital chapel. A linked-detached show home is expected soon to illustrate the community aspect of the development which is providing a complete mix of one, two, three and four-bedroom properties.

Sales manager Colette Gannon believes that the opening of the show apartments can not fail to have a positive affect on sales: "Kingsley Park has evoked a strong emotional response from both local people who know the buildings well and visitors who are only just discovering their charms. The show apartments are able to take that kindling relationship on to another level and allow people the opportunity to grip the reality of living in a historic building."

PJ Livesey has built a reputation as the biggest single developer of listed buildings anywhere in the UK. This reputation has been built on a passion for architecture, commitment to craftsmanship and attention to quality and detail.

Prices for a one-bedroom apartment at Kingsley Park start from £179,950. The sales office is open from Thursday to Monday (10.00 am to 5.00 pm) and sales advisors can be contacted on 01928 740078. For information on other PJ Livesey developments log on to www.pjlivesey-group.co.uk

Solicitor puts her best foot forward
Lynn Norris a commercial property lawyer at Beachcroft in Leeds has
helped to raise vital funds for charity after completing a mammoth 48.1
mile walk along the coastline of Jersey in just one day.

Lynn and husband David - who is originally from Jersey - joined 1200
people in the annual challenge which began at the harbour's Elizabeth
Terminal and ended in Jardins de la Mer. The couple successfully
completed the gruelling walk, starting at 3.00 am and finishing at
9:45pm that same day.

"Although we didn't meet our 8pm target, we're proud to have finished -
particularly as only half the people that took part managed to complete
the 48 miles," said Lynn. "It was a very tough challenge as the cliff
path is really hilly, but we're willing to give it another go next year
to hopefully improve our time and raise more money for charity."

The money raised will go to Family Nursing and Homecare and Headway
charities and the Jersey Employment Trust.

Within walking distance of the town centre, the luxury one- and two- bedroom apartments are ideal for professionals looking for a viable alternative to Manchester city centre.

Public and communal areas are open and well lit and there is also a lift to take residents from the gated private undercroft car-park directly into the reception hall on each floor.

"The motorway network, airport and metro are also nearby, so it's no surprise that the area is proving so popular with homebuyers."

Combining traditional red brick with a white rendered façade, Tivoli House features a contemporary architectural design, including a glass canopy entrance which fills the building with streams of natural light.

The remaining one-bedroom apartment is available for just £169,950 and prices for the five remaining two-bedroom apartments start at £239,950.

Boost for Stockport's neuro-rehabilitation centre

The Devonshire Centre for neuro-rehabilitation is over £1300 better off following a donation from a former patient.

 

Tony Hatton from Stockport spent a few months at the centre following a stroke.  He was so delighted with the results of his treatment that he has been on a fundraising campaign ever since.  Tony and his friend Jim Cunningham, presented the Centre with a cheque for over £1300 following a fundraising night at his local Conservative Club.  Tony has also raised money by taking part in a sponsored swim, which was part of his rehabilitation programme!

 

Specialist physiotherapist at the Devonshire Centre, Mike Gavin, comments:  “We are always delighted to receive money from ex-patients and Tony is a real character, always popping in to see us and tell us how well he is doing. We will put the money towards buying some new recreational or therapy equipment for patients to help them with their recovery.” 

 

Part of Stockport NHS Foundation Trust, the Devonshire Centre is a purpose built development on the site of Cherry Tree hospital which enables people who have suffered severe brain injuries, haemorrhages and multiple sclerosis to be rehabilitated to their full potential.  The multidisciplinary team care for a large number of patients in the younger age bracket of between 20-40 years old who have received injuries from road traffic accidents or assaults.  The work of the team is to help them regain the skills to lead an independent life again which on average can take up to three months to achieve.

Education, education, education

Stepping Hill hospital has been awarded Associated Teaching Hospital Status for its commitment to providing top level tuition to undergraduate medical students in the North West.

 

Associated teaching hospital status means that Stepping Hill has been recognised as providing a high level of education to medical students who come to learn about specific areas of medicine including surgery, obstetrics, gynaecology and paediatrics. The hospital currently offers around 150 placements per year but this is expected to rise sharply from this autumn.  Much of the tuition is practical based learning with students spending time out on the wards taking case histories, talking to patients, attending clinics and shadowing consultants and junior doctors.  This is supported by comprehensive teaching programmes and the continuing commitment of all medical staff and healthcare professionals to educate our next generation of doctors.  Medical students are increasingly returning to train at Stockport throughout their undergraduate years and a high proportion return as foundation doctors.

 

Medical director for Stepping Hill, Dr James Catania, comments:  “We are delighted to receive this official recognition.  This accreditation recognises the fact that we deliver an extremely high level of teaching and that we work to the standards of main teaching hospitals.”

Koramic strengthens UK presence
Koramic - the clay roof tile brand owned by Wienerberger - is showing
its commitment to the UK market with the arrival of three custom-made
delivery vehicles. Branded with the Koramic logo, the fleet features the
latest technology to ensure that clay roof tiles are delivered quickly
and efficiently.

Two of the vehicles feature radio-controlled hydraulic forks to ensure
that pallets of roof tiles are offloaded efficiently and safely. The
third benefits from a specialist piece of equipment which enables two
pallets to be unloaded at a time to speed up the delivery process.

The new fleet is the latest development at Koramic's largest
distribution centre in Sittingbourne, Kent, and will be used throughout
the UK.

"These lorries have been built to our own specification and are purpose
made for delivering clay roof tiles," said Melvyn Smith, commercial
manager for Koramic. "We have sourced the latest handling equipment to
ensure fast and safe deliveries on a daily basis.

"Our presence in the UK continues to strengthen and we have invested
heavily in our Sittingbourne depot to ensure the highest standards of
service. The new liveried fleet is the next step in an exciting future
for Koramic clay roof tiles."

Beachcroft grows leading health and safety team
Following an increase in demand for health and safety legal advice
across the region, Beachcroft has appointed two new solicitors to its
specialist safety, health and environment (SHE) practice in Leeds.

The 32-strong team - which is one of the largest in Leeds - manages
injury claims ranging from minor to catastrophic, including related
issues such as policy coverage, HSE and police investigations and
prosecutions for corporate and insurance clients.

Sarah Baker joins from Praxis Partners in Leeds and Jeremy Bennett from
London-based Burrells.

Speaking about his new role, Jeremy said: "As the largest legal centre
outside London, I was happy to relocate to Leeds, particularly as
Beachcroft is so well known for its strong personal injury team. Working
here will ensure I can gain greater experience of higher value cases,
employers' liability and health and safety law."

Sarah added: "I moved to Beachcroft as I wanted to work for a national
firm with a good reputation. Beachcroft's defendant personal injury
practice in Leeds is listed as number one in Legal 500, so was an ideal
choice."

Sarah and Jeremy will also be joined by two paralegals - Alistair
Kernohan and Sarah Inglis.
