Islington Wharf Locks Now Complete

Islington Wharf Locks Now Complete

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.

Islington Wharf Locks is the latest residential development delivered by Waterside Places, urban waterfront regeneration specialists jointly owned by the Canal & River Trust and Muse Developments.

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.

We were very pleased to be a part of the team working on this exciting project alongside Ryder Architecture, RPS, BWB Consulting and main contractor Eric Wright Construction.

The diversity of facilities housed within the building posed significant challenges for us and the team. Our role in the design of the building, which was delivered as BIM level 2 included providing the detailed designed of the MEP Services and Infrastructure. We also assisted Tameside Council with their environmental services strategy helping them to meet their aspirations for sustainable buildings and development in Tameside.

The development delivery team included Ryder ArchitectureCurtins Consulting, SES Engineering and Robertson Group, who took over from Carillion after the company collapsed.

Tameside One is part of the multi-million pound Vision Tameside master plan, which aims to improve and boost the local economy by attracting new businesses, staff and students to Ashton town centre by creating new jobs and better opportunities.
