The Fortis Quay landmark development will consist of 756 build to rent apartments over four phases. ELLUC Projects were engaged on phase 1 of the development for the conversion of two former office buildings, to be extended by 4 & 6 storeys.
Phase 1 of the development is to consist of 276 Apartments developed by Beaumont Morgan & Fortis Developments on behalf of Clarion.
The existing buildings at Furness Quay in Salford comprised of two buildings of six and eight stories. The buildings, designed and constructed in the 1970’s, had space until 2016 when our client, Fortis Developments, purchased the buildings and submitted a change of use to convert them to residential. We undertook extensive desktop studies during the early stages of the project to identify any redundancy in the existing structure and assess the potential for extension and conversion.
