Altrincham town centre being redeveloped with steel
Steel construction is progressing on the Chapel Square development in Altrincham town centre.
Comprising two five-storey steel-framed apartment blocks and a five-level steel-framed 300-space car park, the scheme will dramatically change the heart of the town.
Working on behalf of main contractor FK Group, Elland Steel Structures is fabricating, supplying and erecting approximately 688t of steel for project.
All three of the structures have been designed with precast floors, with 350t of steel being used for the car park, and 188t and 150t of steel being erected for apartment blocks A and B respectively.
Overall, the scheme will also include a restaurant, commercial space and a new public square with a landscaped garden and seating.
The development will also include large-scale highway improvements to Railway Street to help increase access to Chapel Square and Altrincham Hospital.
Cllr James Wright, Trafford Council’s executive member for housing and regeneration, said: “The Chapel Square development is the latest scheme marking the redevelopment and regeneration of Altrincham town centre. The high-quality development will not only improve the area, but provide much-needed new housing in the centre of Altrincham.
“The scheme will bring more people into the town centre to live, which will add to both the daytime and night-time economy and ultimately benefit the overall economy of the town.”
