Construction of a new 614-unit residential development, Clippers Quay, is now well underway. Work started on site in early summer 2016 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 sees 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 will create and maximise 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
