Project Award: X1 Eastbank, Manchester
Speedclad has been awarded the contract for design, supply and installation of the rainscreen cladding facade on the first phase of this exciting new residential development.
X1 Eastbank Phase One is the beginning of a luxurious 'city-living' scheme, from X1 Developments, in the thriving Ancoats and New Islington area of Manchester. The initial 8-storey building occupies an enviable location off Great Ancoats Street which forms the edge of the city centre, and will provide 111 units of one, two and three bed apartments, plus services including private gym and laundry, and courtyard garden and terraces.
Speedclad's contract, for main contractor Forrest, comprises the design, supply and install of ACM (aluminium composite material) cladding to the facade and balconies to an eye-catching grey and green design from DK Architects.
Drone footage of the site is already available at X1 Developments website. The video also shows The Cube and The Mews developments, sitting behind the new site, which are also facade projects completed by Speedclad.
