The project to construct the biggest residential development outside London is coming to an end after a successful multi-year build.
The development, which is situated on Great Jackson Street in Manchester, includes over 6,300 residential apartments alongside restaurants, cafes and local convenience stores, and is widely considered a key component of the area’s regeneration.
The development will undoubtedly transform the skyline of Manchester City Centre and is part of a large-scale redevelopment of the area including several new high-rise buildings and thousands of apartments.
A successful working relationship between Morgan Bros and Renaker Build has been established for many years, with the Coppull-based metalwork specialists being a crucial component of the build on Great Jackson Street.
Mark Prendergast, the project manager from Morgan Bros, said; “Meeting deadlines efficiently and working effectively is part of the status quo for Morgan Bros, but our client was especially happy with the progress made by our team.
We manufactured and installed a bespoke steel staircase, various balustrade system, and an array of bespoke metalwork throughout the project. Taking notes from the architect to create a 3D design for our client to help them envisage how the result would look.
We worked on several phases of the development, manufacturing from our local workshop and using our in-house team to install.
Tom Morgan, one of the Directors from Morgan Bros, said; “Having worked with Renaker on previous projects it was a pleasure to continue the relationship and deliver on a such a large scale.
We proved that we could adapt and handle all requirements throughout the project and look forward to moving on to future projects.”
While Peter Cregeen from Renaker Build added: “We have used Morgan Brothers as our sole metal work supplier throughout the Deansgate Square development.
The works have ranged from multi million pound penthouse glass balustrades to a one off feature staircase in our leisure block through to the escape stair handrails. Coupled with this, they have supplied and installed large areas of external metal work (including a cantilevered deck above the River Medlock), gates and roof top structures and their business has coped with everything we have asked of them.
The service and quality is exceptional and with a suite of experienced operatives the install always happens in a logical and safe manner. The final ask of them for the scheme is a bespoke metal and timber balcony detail to our concierge space that not only is angled but runs down twin mid-spiral staircases.
I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them for future work or projects.”
