Redcar steelworks demolition bonanza

The demolition industry is preparing for a work bonanza at the former Redcar steelworks site on Teesside.

Over the next 12 months, 19 separate demolitions will take place and 18 individual contracts will go out for tender, creating 390 jobs, 39 of which will be for apprentices.

Tees Valley Mayor Ben Houchen has set out his plan for jobs at the former Redcar steelworks site – a plan that will see almost 400 jobs created and almost £400million worth of investment over the next 12 months.

Throwing the doors open to the newly-named Teesworks site, Mayor Houchen said a host of new contracts will go out for tender in the coming weeks.

In total, 775 jobs will be created through these investments, which will total £393m.

South Tees Development Corporation is planning to establish a £150m demolition framework to deliver much of the work.

This will be split into two main lots covering: large/complex demolition projects over £750,000 and smaller projects.

Councillor Mary Lanigan, Leader of Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council, said: “We have a world-class industrial site and a first rate workforce and it is time to unleash our potential to the full.

“It has taken years of hard work to get this stage and now we’re knuckling down with our partners to make sure this site is even more attractive to investors here in the UK and right across the globe.”

This month the South Tees Development Corporation submitted plans for a 4.5m sq ft manufacturing space on the site of the former SSI steelworks in Redcar.

The huge scheme would see more than 430 acres of land alongside the River Tees remediated and developed with first tenants hoped for as soon as 2022.

The construction phase of the development would create 1,000 construction jobs during its eight-year build,

A new website (www.teesworks.co.uk) will also highlight future opportunities.
