Briggs & Forrester Living commence works on Kampus development.

Described as Manchester’s own secret garden, the £250m mixed use development ‘Kampus’ is being developed by joint venture partners Capital & Centric and Henry Boot Developments to home a new vibrant cultural spot located in the heart of Manchester.

The next phase will include the refurbishment of two 3-storey Grade II listed buildings to create 58 one and two bedroom apartments.

Last year, Briggs & Forrester Living secured a contract on the Manchester development. Working in collaboration with contractors Mount Anvil, Briggs & Forrester Living will be responsible for the design and installation of services including thermal insulation and heating & cooling.

The former Manchester Metropolitan University site will be transformed into a distinctive new city centre neighbourhood offering apartments to rent,  independent bars, restaurants and small- scale local retail units.

Duncan Benedetti, Managing director for Living stated: “We are delighted to be working with Capital & Centric, Henry Boot Developments and Mount Anvil on this fantastic project which will transform and regenerate this historic area of Manchester and bring it back into full use for the community.”

Work on the listed buildings is due this year and the Kampus project is due for completion in summer 2020.
