Graham wins Erie Basin towers

Glenbrook Property has handed Graham Construction a contract for a second build-to-rent project in the Manchester area.

Graham Construction has sealed the deal to build a pair of 16-storey tower blocks at the Erie Basin site in Salford Quays. Together, the towers – designed by Sheppard Robson Architects – will house 270 private rented apartments,.

The dockside development is Graham Construction’s second project with Glenbrook, with work already progressing on a similar £40m project in Ellesmere Street, Castlefield.

The new site is the only land remaining to be developed at Erie Basin, and the buildings will complete the Basin’s fabric and skyline. Glenbrook recently secured £50m in a forward funding agreement with Moorfield for the development.

Graham Construction moves onto site this month and expects to complete the project in summer 2019.

Graham Construction regional director Gary Hughes said: “This is fantastic recognition for the work we are already doing with Glenbrook at the Ellesmere Street development. Despite some demanding ground conditions, we have been able to help Glenbrook to realise the Erie Basin project through an innovative foundation and concrete frame solution.”

He added: “This is our third build-to-rent scheme in the Greater Manchester area and we see residential continuing as a key sector for Graham Construction, building on our portfolio of experience with large scale apartment, student accommodation and hotel projects across the UK.”
