Aberla Secures Another Resi Win
Warrington based Aberla M&E, part of the Aberla Group, has picked up the multi-million M&E package at Burlington Square. The 273-unit residential development, over nine storeys, will be a mix of one and two bed apartments plus penthouse suites, a landscaped courtyard, gym and communal rooftop area. The scheme, for the joint venture partnership between Salboy and Factory Estates, is located on ‘Corridor Manchester’ and is just a couple of minutes’ walk from the University’s campus buildings within the learning quarter.
The M&E work package at Burlington Square includes full heating and electrics, fire and security, lighting, ventilation, LV distribution, sub-main cabling, building management systems and electric car charging points.
This wider project team has been brought together once again following the successful working relationship commencing last year during the renovation of the famous Blackfriar Pub, and wider Local Blackfriars development, which clearly demonstrates a strong and effective partnership.
Dr Daniel Strosnider, strategy & sustainability director at Aberla commented “Our successful ongoing relationship with Domis Construction, Salboy and Factory Estates, has proven another significant scheme for our portfolio. It’s great to be working together again on the next large-scale project in central Manchester.”
“With new investment into the business back in 2017, plus a new management team providing clear and strategic direction, Aberla has gone from strength to strength during this time and, securing repeat work such as Burlington Square, is another step closer to positioning ourselves as the ‘go-to’ building services contractor in the North West”.
Lee McCarren, managing director at Domis Construction said “This high-end development required a trusted partner to carry out the large M&E work package to ensure we hit both programme and budget. Our relationship with Aberla has enabled really positive and open communication from the outset and we’re pleased to have them onboard”.
The development commenced on site in January and is due for completion in February 2020.
