New Project Award: New Cross, Manchester, GRC £2 million circa

GBA are delighted to have received order commitments from the GMI Construction Group to design and supply Grade 18 GRC Cladding for two of three new apartment schemes in Manchester’s New Cross district.

New Cross is a Mulbury Developments project, designed by Tim Groom Architects and follows GBAs involvement within the hugely successful Blossom St, Manchester apartments which are located close by. The Bendix Street scheme will see a 13-storey building of 161 apartments developed where the site meets the corner of Thompson Street and Oldham Road. It features communal lounges, an extensive roof terrace and ground floor commercial space

The Oldham Road development will see 144 apartments created over 12-storeys, also with a residents’ lounge, roof terrace, and ground floor commercial space.

GBA will now begin works upon the detailed component design tasks with GMI’s project team, Tim Groom Architects and S Crosby International.  Henley Stone specialists will install all of the GRC components,  from the early summer of next year through to May of 2023.

The New Cross development represents a significant investment in one of Manchester’s most exciting, emerging areas. It brings inspiring, well-designed new buildings to New Cross while respecting existing buildings and heritage assets.

This project award comprises some 1300m2 of GBAs Portland MSB, Honed finish,  Grade 18 GRC Cladding GBA are employed by Colorminium.

Colorminium’s brief is to carry out the detailed design of the full envelope wrap, with responsibility for all façade elements. Working closely with the design team, particularly structural engineers, they will complete the design, running straight into procurement, fabrication and installation. The future hotel will keep the structure and the best aspects of the existing building whilst transforming the external and internal appearance.

Colorminium’s Approach specifically entails the removal of the existing façade and opening up of the structure, this being the key interface for the whole package. Once the demolition is complete, surveys will be taken to inform the construction issue structural drawings which then releases the design to proceed rapidly, with the aluminium curtain walling being the primary façade scope. In solid areas, lightweight steel framing will be used as slab infills and to give a backing to the GRC and aluminium rainscreen. To terrace areas architectural metalwork including balustrades will be installed to complete the package.

Scheduled for completion next year, this spectacular hotel will boast some of the best connectivity in the country as well as giving its customers spectacular views from open-air terraces.

Detailed design works are now well underway… see typical GRC key plan details attached. Product deliveries are scheduled to begin towards the end of this year through to the Springtime of 2022
