APP's construction team starts work this month at Crewe Gateway for Swansway on a £5m Jaguar dealership, due for completion in mid-January 2017.

Then next month it starts work in Nottingham for Midlands-based Sandicliffe Motors on a £5m Ford & Mazda showroom.

Car showrooms seem to be becoming a specialism for the contractor, established in Leeds in 2007 by accountant Anthony Quinn and surveyor Paul Burke. APP recently completed a £6m multi-franchise facility housing Vauxhall, Mazda and Kia for Perry's in Preston and has refurbished five Skoda dealerships.

APP director John White said: "We've seen strong demand from the automotive sector for some time now and we're confident that securing these latest schemes will further raise our profile with the bigger dealers and franchises."

APP is also starting work this month in Sheffield on a £4m, seven-storey, 63-bedroom student accommodation scheme for Empiric, with completion demanded by September 2017.
