Moda’s sister company Caddick Construction will take the reins from Carillion to deliver the 35-storey tower.
Following Carillion's collapse on 15 January 2018, Caddick will now act as Construction Manager. It has also hired 20 former Carillion employees and the contract win is expected to protect about 30 sub-contractor companies previously working under Carillion.
Adrian Dobson, commercial director at Caddick Construction, added: "The fast and effective takeover of this complex project is a testament to the strength and depth of our team.
"We are fortunate that our construction team has been able to step in and take this project forward within two weeks and are delighted that so many key Carillion employees elected to join the group, as this really strengthens our team in the North West."
