Nuovo Apartments

SCS Contract Scope:

SCS worked with main contractor Sir Robert McAlpine on the Nuovo Apartment scheme on Great Ancoats Street, Manchester.

The steel frame structure, formerly known as Sarah’s Point, was previously mothballed in 2008 when the previous developer fell into liquidation during construction of the 166 apartment scheme. During the project’s dormant period there was a major fire, and significant flooding, so major structural repair works have been required.

Comprising a 12 storey tower, and 5 floor and 6 floor lower blocks, both with semi-external atrium areas, the scheme will provide 126 high quality apartments, and 40 low cost homownership units. There will also be 10,000 sq ft of commercial space to the ground floors.

SCS were engaged by Sir Robert McAlpine to market test and design the internal partitions, ceilings and perimeter linings to apartments, core areas and commercial units. We worked alongside British Gypsum to provide the most cost effective design and specification, taking into account acoustic, fire, thermal, humidity and impact resistant requirements, whilst also considering the requirements in terms of minimum floor area for each apartment. Together we established individual project packs for the 3 blocks, with each block having different overall performance.

At peak output our resident site team managed 60 operatives, with supervision appointed to all 3 blocks.

All of the project stakeholders are excited to see the end result of this long awaited regeneration scheme.
