Aberla M&E completes and commissions “No.1 Old Trafford”


After successfully being appointed to deliver the MEP to the 354-apartment development named ‘No.1 Old Trafford’, Aberla M&E, part of the Aberla Group, has officially completed the project, which started in November 2019.

The M&E team has been on site delivering the complete mechanical and electrical package which included smoke ventilation systems, TV and satellite and a full sprinkler and wet riser package.

This development was complex and large scale, which made the M&E team even happier to announce that they had completed work on site almost 6 months earlier, and able to hand over to project developers ahead of schedule.

The development is approximately 214,000 sq ft and located off Wharf End, which is close to Salford Quays. The blocks are connected by a reception area, but then split between two 18 and 15 storey towers.

The project has a well thought out design that also includes plenty of modern amenities such as a business lounge, laundry rooms and a cinema. Overall, there is a total of 139 one-bedroom apartments, while 211 of the apartments provide two bedrooms and a further 4 apartments have three bedrooms.

Mark Ingham, managing director at Aberla commented, “No.1 Old Trafford is one of a kind and it has been a pleasure to work on such an iconic development. It is always a thrilling moment when you can stand back and look at a completed project after years of hard work.”

Projects such as No.1 Old Trafford will help the Northern Powerhouse to grow and potentially lead to more developments like this in the future.
