Valette Square, Salford

PROJECT OVERVIEW

We are currently providing MEP Performance Duties for a new build development of townhouses known as Valette Square, located at Adelphi Street in Salford.

Named after French Impressionist painter Pierre Adolphe Valette known for his acclaimed paintings of Manchester and Salford. He was a teacher at the Manchester Municipal School of Art and is remembered as L. S. Lowry’s tutor.

The development compromises of 33 townhouses with a mix of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom properties with private gardens and terraces as well as a 52 space car park is also being developed as part of The Royal Hospital building.

Our duties include early stage MEP concept design, utility connections & diversions advice, initial Part L1A calculations, renewable energy technologies feasibility review and site inspection duties.

The townhouse’s features include smart utility metering, waste recycling facilities and improved insulation to minimize heat loss and reduce utility bills.

Valette Square is the fourth Chapel Street residential development by The English Cities Fund as part of the wider Salford Central regeneration scheme. We are very proud to have been a part of the design team for all four of the schemes, including the multiple award-winning Timekeepers Square.

Other members of the team include Buttress Architects, Integra Consulting, Appleyard and Trew and main contractor John Turner Construction Group.

The project is due for completion in December 2020.

PROJECT OVERVIEW

Carpino Place is one of the latest phases of residential development to be delivered on Chapel Street, Salford by the English Cities Fund as part of the wider Salford Central regeneration scheme. This new development of townhouses follows in the footsteps of the award winning Vimto Gardens and Timekeepers Square.

The scheme comprises 22 three-storey townhouses with an internal courtyard housing car parking spaces for each home, private rear gardens, rooftop terraces and patio areas.

We were pleased to work alongside Buttress Architects, Integra Consulting, Appleyard & Trew and John Turner Construction on the project. Our services included early stage concept design and co-ordination with the design team and the review of renewable energy technologies for the scheme.

As part of our duties we also obtained budget utility costs and produced a specification and drawings for the MEP services. We carried out Part L1A calculations and predicted EPC results for each property type, as well as undertaking an overheating analysis. We carried out site visits to review the MEP installations and produced detailed site inspection snagging and defects reports to maintain the highest level of quality throughout.

The English Cities Fund worked in conjunction with Salford City Council to develop the project, creating a design that complements the surrounding area, as well as enhancing the existing streetscape, and strengthening its urban setting. After completion the regeneration of the Salford Central area will create around 11,000 new jobs, 220,000 sq m of commercial space, 849 new homes and 390 hotel rooms.

PROJECT OVERVIEW

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 Church.

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.
