St Johns Quarter, Old Granada Studios, Manchester

To design and construct a 225mm Puriton Water main in a narrow and congested street in the centre of Manchester for the new St Johns Development.

The surrounding area was a mixture of offices and apartment blocks and the works had to be done within a Section 50 notice with the Local Authority. The road within which we were installing the new water main had been re-aligned by the Local Authority to facilitate a one-way traffic system for all site deliveries but also for the car park access into the Bauhaus apartments and offices.

There were also 3 different developments within the area, all of which had their own construction requirements. Due to the sensitivity of the project, timescales were of an essence, and we were restricted to 2 weeks to install the full scope of works.
