Progress update – September 2022

We’ve taken possession of the site for our new development alongside our contractor, IHP, to begin the construction of North View. Demolition has concluded by Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust (MFT), and the site has been formally handed over to us. 

Below are start and finish photographs showing the work completed on the site of our new development.

Materials were kept on site for re-use in the foundations and earthworks for North View (stockpile shown above). 

Materials were salvaged for reclamation to minimise impact on landfill. 

Progress update – October 2022

Building work continues on site. IHP have been erecting safety fencing to secure the site perimeter and deployed welfare facilities for construction staff. Initial works are underway to level the site off, including removal of old basement structures on the site. ​
