Project Description: 589 bathroom pods
Elements Europe manufactured 589 bathroom pods for phase 1 of the £250 million scheme.
Four different types of bathroom pods were manufactured, two types of ensuite bathroom with alternative door hangings, a main bathroom and a jack and jill bathroom.
Bathroom pods were 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 were installed as the building was erected on a floor by floor basis. The first of the bathroom pods were installed in January 2018 and manufacturing continued through to March 2018. The last bathroom pod was installed in August 2018.
500 private rented flats across 23 and 16 storey buildings with retail and leisure facilities on the ground floor make up just part of this development. A former Manchester Metropolitan University building on Aytoun Street was also demolished to make way for the scheme being developed jointly by Capital & Centric and Henry Boot.
The project also included the refurbishment of the existing 1960’s building on the old university campus and another building was converted into loft apartments and around 14,000 sq ft of ground floor commercial space.
