Dearneside is currently onsite fitting the Halo steelwork on the Clippers Quay development in Salford, near Manchester. We will be installing the balconies later this month.
Dearneside has been contracted by Sir Robert McAlpine, a leading construction and civil engineering company, to work on this impressive project.
The scheme, developed by build-to-rent developer Grainger, went onsite in 2016 and should be completed by autumn 2018. It is at present one of the largest build-to-rent developments in the UK, and the biggest one out of London.
The site was previously home to a derelict cinema, which was destroyed to build these new apartment blocks. Clippers Quay was seen as an ideal place to build the development due to its connectivity and proximity to Manchester and MediaCityUK.
Once finished, the development will comprise of five medium-rise buildings, constructed in good quality, durable and low-maintenance materials. In total it will be divided into 614 apartments, as well as commercial space on the ground floor, with shops and cafes.
