Frame on the up at Salford’s Embankment
Structural steelwork is now under way on the 100 Embankment commercial scheme in Salford.
The second of two adjacent office blocks, 100 will offer 15,500m² of BREEAM ‘Excellent’ office space over nine-storeys. Working on behalf of BAM Construction, Elland Steel Structures is fabricating, supplying and erecting 1,800t of steel for the project.
Both office blocks sit above a three-level steel-framed car park that infills a Victorian masonry podium which once supported Exchange Station that closed down in 1969.
Commenting on the scheme, Salford City Mayor, Paul Dennett said: “100 Embankment is a physical demonstration of the commercial development and investment in Salford.
“Once complete this iconic pair of buildings will provide a new corporate centre bringing more jobs and revenue to the local economy.”
