Horbury Facades, part of the Horbury Group based in Rotherham, South Yorkshire, has secured a contract with Sir Robert McAlpine worth £4 million to deliver a ‘through-wall’ solution on a new multi-occupancy residential development in Manchester.
Forming part of the £80m regeneration of Salford’s Chapel Street area, the scheme on Gore Street, Manchester, consists of 375 private rent homes, including 364 apartments and 11 townhouses, split across three blocks that range between 22 and 13 storeys in height.
Working in collaboration with OMI Architects and SRM project delivery team, Horbury Facades is installing a complex horizontal plank rainscreen cladding system, featuring multi-coloured aluminium panels, and balcony details on the three residential blocks.
Horbury Facades is also installing a SFS (Steel Framing System) from EOS and non-combustible Siniat weather defence boards. The scheme is set to be completed by 2020.
