Horbury Facades, part of Rotherham’s Horbury Group, has secured a £4 million contract with Sir Robert McAlpine to deliver a ‘through-wall’ solution on a new multi-occupancy residential development in Manchester.

Forming part of the £80 million regeneration of Salford’s Chapel Street area, the scheme consists of 375 private rent homes, including 364 apartments and 11 townhouses, split across three blocks that range between 22 and 13 storeys in height.

Working in collaboration with OMI Architects and SRM project delivery team, Horbury Facades is installing a complex horizontal plank rainscreen system, featuring multi-coloured aluminium panels incorporating complex balcony penetration details on the three residential blocks.

Horbury Facades is also installing an SFS substrate utilizing an EOS framing system and non-combustible Siniat weather defence board. The scheme is set to be completed by 2020.

General Manager Adrian Storey said: “We are very excited to have secured the contract to work on the innovative redevelopment of Gore Street, we have extensive experience in delivering external envelope schemes and look forward to working with the team to bring their ideas to life to create vibrant new buildings.”
