Bardsley appointed by Mulbury as main contractor on £28m private rented sector (PRS) apartment scheme.
Bardsley Construction has been appointed by developer Mulbury to deliver its £27.6m scheme of 135 apartments in the Northen Quarter of Manchester.
The eight to 14-storey development on the corner of Port Street and Great Ancoats Street marks Mulbury's debut in the burgeoning Private Rented Sector (PRS).
Tameside, Greater Manchester-based Bardsley is due to start on site in November with occupation anticipated in the summer of 2018.
When complete, Port Street will offer mainly one and two-bed apartments with balconies, communal roof top gardens, a reception area and 6,000 sq ft of commercial office space at ground level.
The development was designed by Manchester firm Tim Groom Architects and secured planning permission from Manchester City Council in 2015. It is being financed by M&G Real Estate, one of the UK's largest property investors.
Ged Rooney, procurement director at Bardsley Construction, said "Our hard-earned reputation for the successful delivery on high quality residential developments such as Port Street on time and on budget in locations throughout the north of England is reflected in this prestigious appointment by Mulbury." James Alderson, head of Mulbury City, the division of Lymm, Cheshire-based Bardsley Construction has an impressive project portfolio and, importantly for us, a successful record of building out large-scale development in city centre locations. We look forward to getting on site and delivering what will be a landmark scheme in the Northen Quarter."
