Arch Bar, Manchester

Working with main contractor Shepherd Construction, this is another example of a successful project delivered for Unite.

The complex provides 119 rooms for students at Manchester’s universities as well as parking and a cycle storage area. Poor ground conditions led to the adoption of a mini-piled raft to support the five-storey, timber-framed building. The raft doubles as the ground floor providing a cost effective solution to a difficult geotechnical problem.
