Project Description: 589 bathroom pods
Elements Europe will manufacture 589 bathroom pods for phase 1 of the £250 million scheme.
Four different types of bathroom pods will be manufactured, two types of ensuite bathroom with alternative door hangings, a main bathroom and a jack and jill bathroom.
Bathroom pods will be designed to a high specification with quality sanitaryware, brassware and beautiful finishing materials so to give a luxury finish to these high end apartments, increasing their attractiveness when they are entered onto the PRS sector.
The pods will be installed as the building is erected on a floor by floor basis. The first of the bathroom pods will start to be installed in January 2018 and manufacturing will continue through to March 2018. The last bathroom pod will be installed in August 2018.
500 private rented flats across 23 and 16 storey buildings with retail and leisure facilities on the ground floor will make up just part of this development. A former Manchester Metropolitan University building on Aytoun Street will be demolished to make way for the scheme being developed jointly by Capital & Centric and Henry Boot.
The project will also include the refurbishment of the existing 1960s building on the old university campus and another building will be converted loft apartments and around 14,000 sq ft of ground floor commercial space.
