Stoke’s first Build to Rent Scheme Complete

Stoke’s first Build to Rent Scheme Complete

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 …..

Regenerating Rochdale

Regenerating Rochdale

Once a thriving boom town of the industrial revolution and birthplace of the co-operative movement, Rochdale’s history, architecture and geographic location make it an important Greater Manchester town. However, following the decline of its cotton mills and manufacturing industry the town suffered economic downturn and neglect.

In a bid to turn the fortunes of this town around, Rochdale Borough Council have been actively working to improve the town centre for shoppers, visitors and businesses with a £250 million regeneration programme.

One of several projects undertaken as part of this masterplan is Rochdale Riverside, a new 200,000 sq ft retail and leisure quarter where occupiers will include Marks and Spencer,  H&M, JD Sorts, River Island, Next, New Look and Boots. The retail complex will also feature a six-screen Reel Cinema. The project is progressing well on site and is due for completion Spring 2020.

Once complete it is hoped that Rochdale Riverside will contribute £17m a year to the local economy.
