The firm has appointed former Harry Fairclough Construction managing director Chris Wright to build up the operation, focussing on the North West and M62 corridor.
Wright, 48, spent 10 years at Warrington-based Harry Fairclough before it went into administration earlier this year.
He brings more than 28 years of industry experience and studied civil engineering at Newcastle University.
Wright said: “I’m looking forward to the challenge of developing a civils team that will add real value to Caddick North West’s current operations, as well as expanding its order book by introducing new clients and securing standalone civil engineering projects.”
Regional managing director Ian Threadgold said: “Caddick already has a strong and growing reputation across the region, which is evident when you see the projects we have completed for clients such as Network Space, St Modwens and Bruntwood.
“We hope the creation of this new civils business will further enhance our reputation and offering in the area.”
