Kimpton have been appointed by Torsion Construction in Leeds to deliver the full M&E package and MEP design for the One Victoria Development in Manchester. Located on Great Ducie Street, Manchester, the development consists of towers of ten and thirteen stories with 129 apartments and commercial space below.
It’s a very high end specification build throughout as you can see from the images below, with traditionally piped bathrooms, kitchens and utility spaces and electric heating and water provision throughout. This will be supported by Solar PV on the tower roofs, to greatly reduce the ongoing running costs and carbon impact.
Working to a 16 month programme, we will be installing the initial substation and ground floor plant room, before working our way upwards installing the mechanical and electrical services throughout.
Over recent years we have seen a real rise in the quality of the specifications we are designing and installing across The UK. This type of city living development is attracting a young professional customer who are demanding low carbon, high quality homes to both buy and rent.
The project is being delivered by Paul Cooper, Major Projects Divisional Manager, who has managed many very similar projects over his 20 plus years career with Kimpton.
