AV Danzer continues to support Wates Construction this time working with them on one of Manchester’s most high profile, city centre regeneration projects. Wates has been appointed by JV partners Bruntwood and Select Property Group on the £55m first phase of Circle Square, the name given to the re-development of the iconic BBC site on Oxford Road.
AV Danzer has delivered and installed thirty-six 9.7m x 3m units which have been end-linked and triple stacked and will provide contractor accommodation over the next couple of years.
Danzer have spray-painted the units in Wates’ corporate colours and they will provide high quality relaxation areas, canteen, toilets, changing and wash room facilities for the people working across the site.
The initial phase will see the development of two buildings, one 12-storey, the second from 13 to 17 storeys, which will provide 600 serviced flats with some retail and start-up commercial space at ground and mezzanine floor. There will also be new public realm space, including walkways along the River Medlock.
Once complete the 2.3m sq ft neighbourhood will include residential, commercial and public space amenities as well as shops. It will be delivered in five phases and is due to complete in 2025.
