Hannan Associates are very proud to have been a part of the team to design and deliver Salford Central’s latest residential property development, Valette Square.
The recently completed Valette Square was delivered by The English Cities Fund – a joint venture between Homes England, Legal & General and Muse Developments.
The development includes 33 townhouses with a mix of 2, 3 and 4 bedrooms with private gardens and terraces. It is situated just off Chapel Street, a short walk to Manchester City Centre, Spinningfields, New Bailey, Peel Park and the River Irwell.
The development is 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.
Hannan Associates provided Building Services Engineering consultancy for the new homes, including early stage MEP concept design, utility connections & diversions advice, initial Part L1A calculations, renewable energy technologies feasibility review and site inspection duties.
The design of the townhouses’ façade and orientation optimises natural daylighting and reduces the requirement of artificial lighting. Other design features include smart utility metering, occupant controlled zoned heating system, low energy light fittings, improved insulation to minimize heat loss & reduce utility bills and Integrated Virgin Media and BT telecoms infrastructure.
Other members of the team included Buttress Architects, Integra Consulting, Chroma and main contractor John Turner Construction Group.
This is the fourth phase of residential development in the Chapel Street area by the English Cities Fund, which forms part of the wider Salford Central masterplan. Other schemes include Vimto Gardens, Timekeepers Square and Carpino Place .
Hannan Associates are very proud to have supported clients with the delivery of residential accommodation to the value of around £400M in recent years. Playing a key role in developments for the For Sale, Private Rental, High End, Social and Retirement markets.

Amidst all the difficulties, it has been great to see positive news emerging from our industry; signs that deals are still being done, clients pushing forward with development plans and the planning system still moving.
We were very pleased to see the Store Street residential scheme submitted for planning in April.
Store Street is an affordable housing scheme situated along the Ashton Canal in the Piccadilly Village area of Manchester. The scheme, being developed by Clarion Housing and H20 Urban, includes 63 new apartments and 3 town houses, which are to be constructed over 11 storeys.
Hannan Associates have been appointed to develop the MEP services design, undertake design stage Part L Compliance checks and to produce an Energy Statement in support of the planning application which has been submitted to Manchester City Council.
The apartments consist of one and two bed types and are contained within a triangular shaped block on the lower levels, with a more traditional block tower construction emanating at six storeys high. Each of the 2-bed town houses is enveloped by the building and are constructed over ground and the first level, with each being accessed directly off Store Street.
At handover, fifty percent of the car parking spaces will be supplied by electric vehicle charge points, with passive provision for the remaining 50% of spaces. Secure cycle storage has also been included and a proportion of ‘green space’ incorporated into the scheme design by provision of an accessible terrace area on the sixth level.
It is currently proposed that an ‘all-electric’ services strategy will be adopted for both the apartments and the town houses in order to help future-proof the homes and contribute towards Manchester’s 2038 Net Zero Carbon Target.
Other members of the team include AHR Architects, WSP, Chroma Consulting and Walker Sime.
