The 11-storey building comprises 91 outstanding residential apartments designed by internationally acclaimed architects, SimpsonHaugh and Partners. The highly complex city-centre structure is located within Manchester’s Piccadilly Basin.
The project was adjacent to the Grade II listed Jackson’s Warehouse and completes the enclosure of the Piccadilly Marina, which meant Power On were required to engage closely with English Heritage and the Canal Rivers Trust.
While the electricity connection itself was straightforward, with a 500kVA substation and 300m of HV cable route, the project had complex legal arrangements. Power On’s own in-house legal team were able to smooth the process and gain the necessary legal correspondence to enable all works and ensure energisation was completed on time.
Power On and GMI Construction worked closely together to ensure the project ran to programme. In the heart of this dynamic region, Power On also ensured that neighbouring residential areas were unaffected by the works and that the close proximity to the canal was not an issue.
