The construction of a new 614-unit residential development, Clippers Quay, is now complete.
Work commenced on site in early summer 2016 and completed in 2019, with the main drainage installation, including sustainable drainage systems and a mixture of CFA and driven piles, which were specified to maximise efficiency to meet the specific needs of the building structure.
The new build to rent/private rental sector (PRS) project saw the creation of five high-quality, medium-rise buildings, constructed in durable and low-maintenance materials, with maximum opportunity taken to connect these with the Manchester Ship Canal which bounds two sides of the site. The scheme creates and maximises on external open space, with a mix of publicly accessible areas and private amenity space.
Detailed analysis and assessment of site constraints, resulted in coordinated design solutions which met the Client brief and cost plan.Challenges/Solutions
