The Slate Yard New Bailey Reaches 21 Storeys

The Slate Yard New Bailey Reaches 21 Storeys

The third and final phase of the Slate Yard Build to Rent scheme at New Bailey Salford has reached its highest point of development at 21 storeys.

The £30M apartment block is the largest of the three residential buildings and includes 21 storeys and 199 apartments with one, two and three bedrooms. The Slate Yard provides tenants with leisure and retail facilities at ground floor level, car parking spaces and pedestrian & cycle routes to Irwell River Park.

The Hannan residential team are very pleased to be providing Building Services Engineering consultancy for the project alongside other team members AHR Architects, Buro Four, Walker Sime, WSP and main contractor Morgan Sindall.

The design of the building and the services strategy utilises energy efficient features throughout to minimise its carbon and environmental footprint and meet the sustainable standards set out in the Part L Building Regulations.

Passive construction techniques in the design of the building include enhanced insulation to limit heat loss and an engineered façade design to maximise the use of natural daylight & passive solar gains but minimise overheating.

The Incorporation of high efficiency systems and effective controls throughout the design will help to further minimise energy usage. These features include: smart heating controls, heat recovery ventilation systems, energy efficient lighting and energy efficient lifts.

Photovoltaic panels have been incorporated into the building design to meet a proportion of the electrical demand.

The Slate Yard is one of several schemes we are involved with as part of the £650m New Bailey development scheme being delivered by The English Cities Fund, a joint venture between Muse Developments, Legal and General and Homes England.

We are proud to be a part of the team delivering this important regeneration scheme which aims to create a gateway between Manchester and Salford and provide business opportunities for large and small organisations.

Conwy County Borough Council’s New Offices Central Atrium

The BREEAM ‘Excellent,’ ‘A’ rated Energy Performance Certificate building has been designed to include passive design measures that will reduce carbon emissions and energy consumption including enhanced insulation to the building envelope and engineered facade design.

The glazed proportion of the building façade and the central atrium maximizes natural daylight to offset the demand for lighting whilst at the same time high performance glazing minimizes thermal losses.   To further reduce carbon emissions and energy consumption, the building’s heating and cooling is produced via air source heat pumps, highly efficient LED lighting and roof mounted photovoltaic arrays.

The four storey, 100,000 sq ft office building, said to be the largest development of it’s type in North Wales, will now be home to approximately 780 Conwy County Borough Council’s workers. It has enabled the council to operate more efficiently and improve services for customers by consolidating staff and services into fewer sites.

The building was design by AHR Architects and built by Bowmer and Kirkland construction.

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.
