Case Study: Clippers Quay

This is one of the largest build to rent developments outside of London and a major boost to our focus on growing our private rental sector portfolio.

The development comprises of 614 new private rented homes, along with commercial and amenity space in five individual blocks over ten storeys. With its close proximity to Manchester city centre & Media City UK, Clippers Quay is a highly regarded development within the North-West region.

"Sir Robert McAlpine engaged with NorDan to supply and install windows, glazing and curtain wall for our project delivering over 600 apartments in the PRS market. Immediately is was clear that NorDan commercial and technical team were joined up and worked hard to identify and deliver the right solution for the project. It was refreshing to work with a family owned business, like ourselves, who clearly shared the same values and objectives in their day to day jobs. We would certainly recommend NorDan and fully intend to work with them again."

Mike Rider, Project Manager, Sir Robert McAlpine Ltd

The scheme has been designed with a focus on building a dynamic community and taking much inspiration from the American multi-family housing model. The scheme is of a scale that will enable Grainger, the UK’s largest listed residential property owner and manager, to implement its full-service private rental model.
