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 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.
Waterside Places started building homes in New Islington, Ancoats over a decade ago and in that time the area has seen much growth. Ancoats is now one of the most desirable neighbourhoods to live in Manchester City Centre and has seen the addition of a school, new bars, restaurants, retail and office space – and there is much more to come over the next 10 years.
This exciting new development, which has now nearly sold out, incorporates 103 new homes including one and two bedroom luxury apartments and three and four bedroom town houses set around a central courtyard next to the Ashton Canal basin.
The Hannan residential team provided MEP Performance Design Duties together with On Site Installation Quality Monitoring and Testing and Commissioning Witnessing Duties.

The £650 million scheme, which is transforming the New Bailey and Chapel Street areas of Salford is led by the English Cities Fund, a joint venture between Muse Developments, Legal & General and Homes England in conjunction with Salford City Council.

One of our newest clients is Ronald McDonald House Charity, who we are very proud to have been providing Building Services Design consultancy for during the last year at their Manchester and Oxford sites.
The Charity helps families to stay close to their child in hospital while they undergo medical treatment by giving them a warm and welcoming environment where they can stay for as long as they need.
At the Manchester Ronald McDonald House three spaces within the existing Manchester house have been refurbished to create five new six person family bedrooms along with an external reflection area. These brilliant new facilities were achieved because of the unrelenting fund raising efforts driven by Steve Burne and AEW Architects: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/steveburneroom
