Frank Rogers has been awarded the contract by the Congregation of the Sisters of St Mary of Namur (SSMN) to demolish and rebuild a large detached purpose-built Convent in Huyton, Merseyside.

Two existing semi-detached properties are set for demolition at the site on Swanside Road. Both buildings have formed part of the Order’s property portfolio for over 40 years and needed modernising and re-modelling to accommodate the needs of the Order for many decades to come.

The new purpose-built modern building will become a home for the Sisters who have had communities and ministry in Merseyside for over 40 years. The building will be both a home for the Sisters (8) and a place of welcome and apostolic ministry, serving both the local and wider communities

The eight-bedroom property includes a Chapel, and features a lift, render, stone and brick exterior with perimeter walls and electric gates.

Work at the site is now underway with demolition works almost complete.

Dean Rogers, managing director of Frank Rogers said:

“We won this work via competitive tender. It is our sixth new build contract win within the last 12 months, and recognises our skill set as a new build main contractor.

“The team is now on site, and demolition of the existing structure has already been carried out. The project is due for completion in February next year and our team will be working closely with representatives from the Order and Smythe and Associates Surveyors as the project progresses.”
