The specialist M&E contractor, with extensive experience in Manchester’s high-rise sector, will be responsible for all building services infrastructure in a 144-apartment block on Oldham Road and a second 161 apartment development on Bendix Street, New Cross – one of the seven neighbourhoods forming the city’s Victoria North masterplan.
The first contract to start is on the £3m Oldham Road development, where Ameon will install a CHP, serving heat interface units in each apartment, sprinkler mist systems, lighting and power, door access systems, CCTV, and security, together with data, TV, and satellite installation.
The specification will also include a roof mounted solar PV unit for electricity generation.
Ameon’s £3.2m contract on the adjacent Bendix Street block is expected to begin in summer, with a similar specification to the Oldham Road block.
Both contracts are due for completion in 2023.
Ameon managing director, Robin Lawson said: “These developments epitomise smart urban regeneration and will be a fantastic addition to the skyline to the north of the city.
“We’re looking forward to playing our part in bringing these new buildings to life and to working closely with GMI to deliver more high-quality accommodation for Manchester’s burgeoning residential infrastructure.”
Marc Banks, GMI’s Divisional Managing Director – North West, added: “GMI are delighted to have appointed Ameon as our M & E partner on the New Cross projects. Ameon will bring invaluable experience and capability to ensure the projects are successfully delivered.”
