One Vesta Street, Manchester
Speedclad completed the extensive rainscreen cladding façade contract on this new private residential scheme in Manchester’s city centre.
One Vesta Street built on the regeneration objectives of development company, Manchester Life, a joint venture between Manchester City Council and the owners of Manchester City FC, the Abu Dhabi United Group. The development provides 171 new homes, ranging from 1-3 bed apartments, 3-4 bed duplexes and 4-bed townhouses, arranged around a central lobby and amenities area.
One Vesta Street is located in New Islington, adjacent to the historic Ashton Canal, with many of the residences enjoying waterside terraces. The building scales up from 7-9 storeys, with additional design features by architects, Rafael Vinoly, to reflect the surrounding environment and waterway.
Speedclad’s contract, for Eric Wright Construction, comprised the design, supply and installation of the ceramic granite rainscreen cladding from Shackerley in a natural colour, aluminium panels and all associated items. Speedclad’s on-site management and installation team worked closely with our client and other trades to coordinate the logistics and environment controls, and overcome the challenges of construction, posed by working adjacent to a waterway and within a busy city centre location.
