October 2017

Wetherby-based family-run construction giant the Caddick Group has been included at number 188 in this year’s Sunday Times Grant Thornton Top Track 250 list.

The group has fulfilled all the criteria to be ranked as one of the most successful mid-market private businesses in the UK including a steady operating profit growth year on year and operating margins of at least 2%.

The listing recognises Caddick Group’s contribution to high-quality building in the residential and commercial sectors in Leeds, Manchester and London.

The award win comes at an exciting time for Caddick Group, which recently announced plans to redevelop the iconic Quarry Hill site in Leeds city centre into a £300m mixed use neighbourhood to be branded as SOYO. The redevelopment will see new bars, restaurants, public sphere and American-style rental flats delivered and managed by Moda Living, Caddick Developments’ build-to-rent platform.

Earlier this summer Caddick Developments, also completed Vauxhall Sky Gardens in London. The 36-storey landmark tower includes panoramic views of the capital and won the Housing Project of the Year at the SundayTimes British Homes Awards.

Caddick Group is one of the biggest landowners in Leeds city centre and has delivered some of the region’s biggest developments, from Vanguard Retail Park in York to Crosspoint 33 distribution centre outside Wakefield as well as Trinity Leeds. The company also owns the development land at Leeds Valley Business Park and the City One site in Leeds South Bank, and is currently spending £40 million revamping Leeds stadium.

Johnny Caddick, Director at Caddick Group, said:

“We are delighted to be included as one of the Sunday Times top 250 private companies in the UK, recognising the strong corporate performance of the Group. It has been a successful year where we have started and completed a number of landmark schemes, and we look forward to the year ahead.”

Last year Caddick Construction was listed as one of the top ten construction companies in the UK, being recognised in both the top ten Best Main Contractors to Work For and the Best Main Contractors to Work With categories.
