Hannan Associates are delighted to have been part of the team involved in the development of Stoke-on-Trent’s first build to rent scheme, Clayworks, which has now reached practical completion.
Clayworks, which is owned by Fortior Homes, incorporates 151 new homes including studio, one and two bedroom apartments and was developed by Genr8 Developments in partnership with Stoke City Council as part of the wider £200m Smithfield development in the heart of Stoke-on-Trent.
The residential development, which is now half let, also features co-working space, function rooms, cycle storage and a roof top terrace with BBQ facilities.
The Hannan residential team provided Building Services Engineering consultancy for the development and were very pleased to work alongside Cartwright Pickard, Walker Sime, Planit IE, Buro Happold and main contractor Willmott Dixon on the project team.
The overall Smithfield masterplan incorporates Grade A office space, a Hilton Garden Inn hotel, retail and leisure space and new public realm and will provide the crucial link between existing residential, shopping, cultural and heritage areas bringing the city together into a coherent whole.
The name Clayworks is a nod to the city’s history of potteries production for centuries.
Hannans have supported our clients with the delivery of residential accommodation to the value of around £400M in recent years. We have played a key role in developments for the For Sale, Private Rental, High End, Social and Retirement markets. To find out more about our Residential experience please see our brochure …..

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.
