The company helped transform the fortunes of what had been a stalled residential scheme in Manchester.
Forming part of a wider regeneration scheme for the Ancoats area, Nuovo Apartments provides 166 apartments, 40 of which are affordable homes, along with ground-floor commercial space.
Comprising a 13-storey tower and two lower blocks, the part-built scheme on Great Ancoats Street was on hold for several years prior to our involvement.
With the site subject to a major fire and significant flooding during the project’s dormant period, major structural repair works were required.
To understand the condition of the structure, a laser scan was commissioned, with the resulting information used to coordinate alignment of partitions and structural steelwork to avoid clashes.
As part of our investment in the local community, we are assisting neighbouring charity 42nd Street in the refurbishment of an old Victorian shop for it to use in its work providing support services to young people under stress.
