The Slate Yard New Bailey Reaches 21 Storeys
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.
