GRAHAM Construction awarded second Glenbrook Build-to-Rent project in Manchester

GRAHAM Construction has won a contract to build 270 apartment in Salford Quays.

The 16-storey Build-to-Rent (BTR) residential scheme in Manchester is the second project the construction firm has been awarded by Glenbrook Property.

The Erie Basin dockside development will feature two linked multi-storey apartment blocks, gardens, car parking and ground floor amenity space.

The site, situated adjacent to MediaCityUK, is the only remaining land to be developed at Erie Basin, and the building – designed by Sheppard Robson Architects – will complete the Basin’s fabric and skyline.

Gary Hughes, GRAHAM Construction regional director, said: “This is fantastic recognition for the work we are already doing with Glenbrook at the Ellesmere Street development.

“Despite some demanding ground conditions, we have been able to help Glenbrook to realise the Erie Basin project through an innovative foundation and concrete frame solution.

“The development is another step to meeting demand for quality living spaces in the Salford Quays area, creating communities and further benefitting the region’s economy.

“This is our third Build-to-Rent scheme in the Greater Manchester area and we see residential continuing as a key sector for GRAHAM Construction, building on our portfolio of experience with large scale apartment, student accommodation and hotel projects across the UK."

The project is expected to be completed in summer 2019.
