Private Rented Sector Win for Elements Europe
Elements Europe has secured a multi-million pound private rented scheme in Manchester, as the national appetite for PRS apartments continues to flourish.
The seven storey building is a development by Solidagent Investments Ltd, and working with the professional team at Edmond Shipway, Condy Lofthouse Architects and Lee Architects, Elements Europe will manufacture, deliver and install 154 modules, providing 136 habitable studio apartments.
Three types of Room Modules between 28m sq and 31m sq will be manufactured to incorporate an open plan living, kitchen and dining area, a bedroom and bathroom all to the chosen specification of the client. Elements Europe will also manufacture all stair cores, a plant room, a reception/security office, entrance hall and a recycle room for the scheme.
A fully modular solution will result in a fast and efficient construction programme maximising rental income. The modules will take just 8 weeks to manufacture whilst the main contractor prepares the site ready for the install of room modules.
Six Victorian terrace houses have been demolished and the land remodelled to make way for the apartment block.
The scheme is in a great location residing on Hathersage Road, a mile from Manchester’s city centre and a short walk away from the Central Manchester University Hospital and Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.
Kevin Arthur, Sales Director commented on the scheme “We believe this will be the first of many apartment schemes we will be delivering for the Private Rented Sector.”
“We have been working on PRS projects alongside developers and investors for some time and we are delighted that the Hathersage Road project is now moving forward” he added
“It has been a pleasure to have developed the scheme with Solidagent Investments professional team.”
Elements Europe Delivers First Retail Project
Kings Barbers Club received delivery of its brand new barber retail module direct from the Elements Europe factory last Wednesday, and it was officially opened by the Mayor of Coventry two days later.
Elements Europe has worked closely with Kings Barbers to design the bespoke retail module from scratch, ensuring that it was manufactured to the exact specification required by the client.
Kevin Arthur Sales Director for Elements Europe commented “It is testament to just how flexible our modular solutions are, delivering for yet another sector.”
“We wish Kings Barbers all the very best in their new location and hope to work with them again in the future.”
The module, which sits in the car park of Sainsbury’s in Canley, South West Coventry is the result of a vision Kings Barbers Club has had for some time and is an entirely unique set up for the barbering industry.
The module covers just 10 car parking spaces and offers an additional service to the Sainsbury’s store. Kings Barbers is the largest barber franchise in the UK and is the first modular outlet for Kings Barbers Club in addition to its portfolio of 15 high street stores across the Midlands.
Adam Choudhry, Owner of Kings Barbers Club commented “We are delighted to have launched the first modular Kings Barbers Club outlets offering locational flexibility.”
“We hope that this outlet is the first of many to enable us to offer our first class barbers service to a wider audience.”
New Manufacturing Facility for Elements Europe
It has been a busy few years for Elements Europe, with continued increased demand for its modular solutions. So much so it has out grown its facility in Oswestry which has now been relocated to a site in Apley, Telford to meet future demand with maximum efficiency.
The move centralises the whole business, bringing steel rolling, production, design, procurement, warehousing and accounts under one roof.
“The move holds a huge amount of benefits.” commented Glen Davies, Procurement Director.
“Being able to expand under one roof makes for a seamless and efficient approach to all of our projects including having the capacity to break into new markets.”
“We are all really excited for the future.” He added.
The new site which has 266% more floor space than the old facility in Oswestry means order capacity can be increased, therefore bringing more employment opportunities to Telford.
