The Kampus project, Manchester's urban regenerationDate: 11 January, 2019 | Author: Administrator
Kampus is a unique urban regeneration project taking form in Manchester City Centre. When complete Kampus will bring approximately 450,000 square feet of mixed-use floor space including 500 apartments, bars and restaurants. Procured by some of our regular clients Capital & Centric and their partner Henry Boot Developments, this £250 million project is bringing something new to Manchester through great innovation and a blend of traditional and contemporary construction.
Kampus is being built upon the old Manchester Metropolitan University campus which inspired the project name. We are working closely with principal contractors Mount Anvil to restore the two listed 19th century warehouses that stand derelict on site. Our scope of works initially consisted of carrying out abrasive cleaning works to the building’s internal masonry and steelwork. However, we have since been awarded the external brickwork contract and are pleased to announce that both contracts are steadily underway. Our site team is working hard to help bring these iconic warehouses back to life.
The Minto & Turner and Minshull buildings once fully restored will stand to reflect a piece of Manchester’s industrial history, we are proud to be working hard to preserve another piece of Manchester’s past and bring it forward with us into the futuristic development that is the Kampus project.
