Aberla has won its largest contract to date by securing an £8million work package on The Crescent in Salford.
With the successful appointment to the 399-apartment scheme, named ‘Local Crescent’, Aberla M&E, part of the Aberla Group, is due to commence fit-out stage as the project hits the half-way point in the construction programme.
The PRS development, currently being constructed by Domis, includes a 22 and 16 storey tower and acts as the gateway between Salford and Manchester on Chapel Street. Alongside the towers will be a smaller six-storey block with the entire scheme offering a mix of one, two, three-bed apartments and townhouses. In addition, the residential development will include a swimming pool, yoga rooms and gym facility on the first floor of the tallest tower, plus commercial spaces on the ground floors.
Aberla M&E will be installing all elements of mechanical and electrical engineering, renewable technologies including a combined heat and power system, and utility services.
Dr Daniel Strosnider, strategy & sustainability director at Aberla Group, stated “Since joining Aberla 18 months ago, the results of our growth strategy have exceeded all expectations. This Local Crescent project win is the perfect example of how working closely with key partners to provide an outstanding service has resulted in securing a really exciting opportunity on a key gateway site.”
Kingsley Thornton, director at Domis, commented “We’ve seen Aberla’s commitment to delivery since working together on a number of schemes across the North West and it was a natural fit that we would appoint them for this significant PRS development in Salford. With the project due for completion in spring 2020 works on site are now ramping up and we’ve real confidence in all the sub-contractor teams appointed.”
