Graham Construction wins build-to-rent project in Manchester
May 05, 2017 – Graham Construction has bagged its second contract from Glenbrook Property to construct a build-to-rent (BTR) development in Manchester, UK.
The project will include the construction of two residential blocks at the Erie Basin site in Salford Quays.
Designed by Sheppard Robson Architects, the scheme will feature 270 private rented apartments, gardens, a car park and ground floor amenity space.
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.
“We look forward to moving onto the Erie Basin site in May of this year, and expect the project to be complete in summer 2019.”
