Here at Enviroply Roofing, we are leading roofing experts delivering a range of high quality roofing systems across the North West. We were delighted to win our bid to deliver a professional and suitable roof for the Melody Gardens project in Salford. This is an incredibly high value project, providing 58 affordable houses and apartments, to the heart of the residential centre in Salford.
Project: Melody Gardens
Address: Melody Gardens, Liverpool St, Manchester, M5 5HQ
Architects: TADW Architects
Architects Client: Places for People Homes Ltd in collaboration with Investar Developments
Contractor: Watson Homes
Roof size: 1000m2
Roof system: IKO Armourplan Single Ply Roof
Places for People collaborated with Investar and Watson Homes to develop a mix of 58 new homes in Salford. These homes are designed to add social value, and all 58 homes will be allocated via the Local Authorities Choice Based Lettings system to Salford residents who are in housing need. This is a landmark social project worth £6M.
The 58 different properties comprise:
⦁ 17 one bedroomed apartments
⦁ 31 two bedroomed apartments
⦁ 8 three bedroomed houses
⦁ 1 four bedroomed bungalow
Each of the houses, as well as the bungalow, will have a private garden. And there are also 46 car parking spaces.
Our role in the project
Our role here at Enviroply Roofing, is to provide an effective, durable and professional roof for the property. We opted for an IKO Armourplan single ply roofing system which is mechanically fixed. This is a great roofing option for a space like Melody Gardens. With professional wind load calculations, we can be sure that the roof will not move, even in the strongest wind. Mechanically fixed roofs are also incredibly secure, as every part of this roofing system is held in place firmly, with mechanical fastenings that will not rust or change over time.
Progress so far
The project is currently running ahead of schedule, and on budget, into the third quarter of development. The homes are expected to be fully complete by the end of the year.
