After the successful delivery of the 101 Embankment office building in Manchester in 2016, Prater has been appointed by BAM to provide an external package for the neighbouring 100 Embankment – as part of a two-phase development.
Main contractor BAM required a supply chain that could successfully deliver a high quality, fast paced programme. With proven expertise from the 101 Embankment project, Prater was appointed to deliver unitised curtain walling, rainscreen cladding and Glass Reinforced Concrete (GRC) feature panels. We are working with key members of our supply chain including Kawneer, Interpane and Schuco that have been involved from an early stage to ensure successful collaboration.
100 Greengate is a development by the joint venture partners Ask Real Estate and the Richardson family located at the Greengate area of Salford which is part of a major regeneration plan, with the development of a brand new business district at the heart of the scheme. Located on the site of Manchester’s historic Exchange Station, and overlooking the city’s Cathedral, the development sits at the heart of the joint city centres. The location offers a wide variety of retail, cultural and leisure opportunities and is well served by a range of public transport options, with Victoria Station and Metrolink in close proximity.
“We are incredibly pleased to be working on the historic Greengate redevelopment once more,” commented Miguel Santos, Pre-Contracts Manager at Prater, “We are looking forward to collaborating with both BAM and our key supply chain partners on this project to deliver the same high standard as 101 Embankment – its sister building.”
The project, designed by architect Flanagan Lawrence, is due for completion in June 2020, and we will begin work on site in June 2019.
