The Castings, Manchester

Elements Europe are pleased to announce that the final bathroom pods are being manufactured and installed at The Castings development in Manchester city centre, for client Midgard Ltd and Packaged Living.

Based in the Piccadilly East area of Manchester, this 25-storey apartment building will be home to 352 Build-to-Rent (BTR) one-, two- and three-bedroom apartments, resident amenities and a new public square. Elements Europe will manufacture a total of 545 floorless bathroom pods for the scheme, including shower and bath pods.

Packaged Living is a bespoke, Build-to-Rent developer and operator at the forefront of the private rented sector (PRS). Purchased in partnership with a Fiera Real Estate UK Fund, the scheme forms part of the Portugal Street Masterplan and will be one of the standout residential offerings in Manchester city centre.

Kevin Arthur, Head of Sales commented: “We will deliver to any build schedule set out by the main contractor. Midgard’s efficient planning has led to seamless production and delivery of our bathroom pods. Manchester’s build to rent market continues to grow and we are proud that we could help improve the speed, quality and efficiency of the build thanks to offsite manufacturing methods we use. We would like to thank our client Midgard Ltd for the opportunity to work together and we look forward to delivering more projects for them in the future.”
