Our latest installation for Renaker, at Crown Street in Manchester city centre, is now fully operational as the mixed-use development enters its latest phase of construction.
In partnership with Manchester City Council the developer has announced that it is delivering a 4,400 sq ft medical space, a public park, and a 14,000 sq ft educational facility as part of the wider Crown Street project, the first phase of which features apartment blocks of 52 and 21 storeys.
Earlier this year we installed an initial twenty-four units on Crown Street site to support the residential development and you can read about that here. For this latest phase we delivered and installed a further twelve units to create a complex of thirty-six units in total. These were delivered over a couple of weekends in April to ensure access and cause minimal disruption to the site works as well as to allow for the necessary road closures.
The OpenSpace units are arranged in a triple-stack system and provide ground floor welfare accommodation including induction space, kitchens, canteens, drying rooms, toilets and washrooms. The first floor comprises Renaker’s site accommodation suites and the latest installation creates a second floor of office space for the project’s sub-contractors. The three levels are linked by external staircases and include air conditioning and PIR lighting.
Crown Street sits alongside Renaker’s landmark Deansgate Square where Renaker is already delivering 1,508 apartments in four buildings ranging between 64 and 44 storeys. The tallest tower is 200m high, 54m taller than Manchester’s iconic landmark Beetham Tower. Both schemes are part of Manchester’s Great Jackson Street masterplan which includes more than 5,500 apartments and mixed-use units.
