Timekeepers Square, Salford
After completing work on the Vimto Gardens residential development we were pleased to be invited back to work on the second phase of English Cities Fund’s Chapel Street, Salford regeneration scheme. The Timekeepers Square residential development is situated next to St Philips Church and consists of 36 new build Town Houses divided into six blocks around St Phillips Chrurch.
We developed the Electrical and Mechanical services to stage 3 concept design ready for an MEP contractor to detail design each townhouse. Once our stage 3 tender package was issued we then provided design guidance and monitoring duties to the installation to ensure compliance with British standards, client brief and project specifics, tracked with a monthly site inspection report issued to the whole design team. On handover of each block, we reviewed all certification, witnessed system operation, and required demonstrations to further prove compliance with the contract documents. We joined Buttress Architects and Integra Consulting Engineers on the design team.
The project was awarded ‘best built residential acheme’ and was runner up for ‘best overall scheme’ at the 2017 Manchester Architects Awards. It is also nominated for The Sunday Times British Home Awards ‘Development of the Year’ (under 300 homes)
