Graham Construction has been awarded its second project with Glenbrook Property to build a 270 apartment 16-storey residential scheme at the Erie Basin site in Salford Quays, in Manchester.

The Build-to-Rent (BTR) scheme will feature two linked multi-storey apartment blocks, gardens, car parking and ground floor amenity space. The site is the only remaining land to be developed at Erie Basin.

The prominent dockside development is Graham Construction’s second project with Glenbrook, with work already underway on a £40m BTR project for the property developer in Ellesmere Street, Castlefield.

Designed by Sheppard Robson Architects the development is situated in the heart of Salford Quays, adjacent to MediaCityUK. Completion is expected in the summer of 2019.

Gary Hughes, Graham Construction’s regional director, said the contract award was “fantastic recognition for the work we are already doing with Glenbrook at the Ellesmere Street development.

“Despite some demanding ground conditions, we have been able to help Glenbrook to realise the Erie Basin project through an innovative foundation and concrete frame solution.”

Hughes said the latest project was the firm’s third BTR scheme in the Greater Manchester area.
