AVDanzer seems to have been taking Manchester by storm in recent years with our site welfare units being specified time and time again on groundbreaking developments and regeneration projects right across the city.
We supported BAM Construction in the delivery of the Co-op’s new HQ at One Angel Square and our units were specified again by BAM for the delivery of Manchester City FC’s new youth training academy at the Etihad Stadium.
Since then we have also supported the construction teams at Allied London’s Number 1 Spinningfields and for Wates Construction at the old BBC site on Oxford Road, now called Circle Square. We’ve also delivered for Renaker projects right across the city including Wilburn Basin, Cambridge Street and Water Street. Other Manchester projects include for Network Rail at Ashburys and for BAM at the National Graphene Institute in the University quarter. This week we have once again been appointed by Renaker on its Owen Street development.
Our latest Manchester project is for Graham Construction and Eric Wright Construction at the historic Murray Mills in Ancoats, East Manchester.
Both firms are working with Manchester Life Development Company on this extensive regeneration project which, over the next 18 months, will deliver 124 new homes for sale.
Murray Mills was once the cornerstone of Manchester’s cotton industry. The guiding principle for the development is to preserve many of the Mills’ 19th century features and create a unique living experience. The historic canal basin will form the centre of a landscaped courtyard, with every apartment individually designed to make the most of the building’s features.
Both Eric Wright and Grahams came to us to provide site accommodation units and we have delivered 10 modules to each contractor, double stacked 5 on 5 to provide welfare facilities including wcs, dryer rooms, a canteen, kitchen and induction/meeting rooms together with office spaces.
Murrays Mills sales will launch in the second half of 2016 and will be ready for occupation by Autumn 2017.
To find out more about Manchester’s property boom it’s worth checking out student Ed Howe’s interactive map of developments across the city which shows all projects currently under construction or proposed in and around Manchester city centre.
The colour-coded map indicates the locations of proposed buildings, as well as those projects that have been granted planning permission or are under construction. The map also includes transport schemes and masterplan areas.
It certainly seems that there is no stopping this great city in which our Denton team is so proud to live and work.
