Timekeepers Square wins Civic Trust Award

Timekeepers Square wins Civic Trust Award

Our client The English Cities Fund established by leading regeneration and investment organisations Homes England, Legal & General and Muse Developments, have won a prestigious Civic Trust National Award for its Timekeepers Square scheme in Salford.

The new development scheme was selected as one of just 18 winners from a shortlist of 45 finalists from across the globe. The recent win marks the third award for the development after previously winning small housing development of the year at the 2018 Insider North West Property Awards, and an award for best multiple rental (Built) at the 2017 Manchester Society of Architects Awards.

The scheme was designed by Buttress Architects as a contemporary reinterpretation of the area’s existing Georgian houses, and consists of three blocks of 36 two, three and four-bedroom townhouses. Each of the terraces have been set out to re-establish the historic urban grain of the area, focusing on the architectural and urban focal point of the adjacent Grade II* listed St Phillips Church, while also serving to define a new communal courtyard at the heart of the development.

Timekeepers Square is the second of three residential developments in the area from the English Cities Fund alongside Vimto Gardens and Carpino Place, that form part of the wider Salford Central regeneration scheme. We are proud to have been on the project team for all three of the successful developments and congratulate all those involved on another deserving awards win.

BUPA at Media City

BUPA at Media City

The latest project for our commercial team is the base building and fit out plans for the new 146,186 ft², 5 storey regional head quarters building for BUPA at Media City. One of the biggest commercial property lettings in Greater Manchester for the last five years, the new building will see approximately 2,000 Bupa  personnel relocate from two neighboring buildings.

Part of Bupa’s drive for investing in ‘The Regent’ is to occupy a building which is more environmentally sustainable through design, fit-out, location and approach to travel.

We are currently completing MEP services consultancy duties for the project which include monitoring the CAT A installations, performance design and monitoring the Cat B fit out for the development.

The main contractor for the new building is Morgan Sindall, and we join Shepherd Gilmour, Sheppard Robson,  Colliers and Turner Townsend on the clients team.

The building is progressing well and is expected to be completed in April 2018.

Our newest collaboration with Omega Warrington Ltd is nearing completion.

Located at the south side of the Omega Business Park the facility for Dominos Pizza is a 117,000 sqft industrial building, consisting of a 11,141sq.ft GIA two storey office area,  a gatehouse building constructed on a secured enclosed site, external car parking, HGV parking, and a service yard.

The building operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The site and associated buildings were constructed to Cat B level of services, tailored to meet the specific needs of the building Tenant.

We provided performance duties (Stage 3a Developed Design) for Cat A and Cat B Works, were established on the Developers base building specifications, and Dominos enhanced Cat B fit-out to the Offices and Plant Areas, to suit the enhance fit-out works in preparation for the full Cat C manufacturing, storage and distribution plant fit-out to the warehouse.

Additional duties included the monitoring of the MEP design contractors technical design solutions, construction works on site, and final testing and inspections for handover of the works to the Cat C fit-out contractors.

Once completed the new facility will service 450 Domino’s stores across the north, and provide over 120 jobs for people in the local area.
