Specialist Cladding Systems (SCS), a division of CA Group Limited, has strengthened its portfolio by carrying out the design, supply and installation of the façade for a high-end residential development in Salford.
Working with main contractors, McGoff Construction, SCS will design and install a full cladding system for Downtown Manchester, a 368-apartment scheme along the River Irwell.
The Downtown development will feature six statement blocks, in differing heights, along with communal facilities such as an onsite gym and spa, 24-hour concierge service and media room.
Paul Guilfoyle, senior project manager at McGoff Construction, described Downtown as a ‘prestigious development’ and a ‘desirable residence’.
“With its Manhattan-inspired design influence, it aims to create a new iconic property on Manchester’s skyline,” he said.
“The exterior of the six apartment blocks requires an exceptional finish, which is why we have chosen to work with SCS, who are experts in providing specialist cladding solutions.”
Work begins on the opening phase of the project next month (April), and will continue over several phases spanning the next three years.
Mike Cinnamond, Divisional Manager for SCS, said they were ‘delighted’ to partner with McGoff Construction for a project of this magnitude.
“Downtown’s service-led apartment living is sure to provide the aspirational residents of both Salford and Manchester with an apartment that will enhance their lifestyle and exceed expectations,” he said.
“New design opportunities, brought about by innovations in cladding, are enabling us to deliver contemporary solutions to the residential new-build market.
“The role of cladding in building design has evolved, while its main purpose of protecting the building from the elements remains, cladding is central in the overall aesthetic and design of the build, a key factor in the Downtown development.”
CA Building Products’ Prime RFX PPC aluminium rainscreen cladding system featured in the project, alongside the Corium brick slip rainscreen system from Taylor Maxwell and a plethora of ancillary products.
