Company - Ideal Modular Homes and Property Alliance Group
Constructed using an unrivalled offsite system for the housebuilding sector, Uptown is a new residential development offering exceptional levels of efficiency and quality.
Property Alliance Group, in partnership with Ideal Modular Homes, is delivering the scheme which is being built using a cross-laminated, modular timber (CLT) structure and a focus on quality, sustainability, fast product times and cost efficiency.
Located on the banks of Manchester's River Irwell, Uptown will offer 156 one and two-bedroom apartments located across three buildings that each rise to different heights. It is a prime example of the crucial role modular construction can play in quickly and efficiently delivering much needed new homes.
The high-quality construction of the new apartments will make them more cost-effective to run, passing on considerable energy savings to residents and reducing household bills by 20%, while helping to improve the sustainability of new build homes. The use of CLT offers a number of advantages, reducing time on site, sound and waste. The material is also highly versatile and lighter than steel or concrete, ensuring lower carbon emissions.
