@McLgroupplc have awarded Cara Brickwork the masonry package to St Gabriel’s Lodge, off Oxford Road, Manchester, which is being built for McLaren Property 👏

The site was previously used as female-only accommodation for students at the University of Manchester. It will now see the creation of 318 student bedrooms designed by the award winning @SimpsonHaugh_architects.

The development features a mix of studios and cluster apartments delivered across refurbished and new-build elements.

Woodthorpe Hall and the original St Gabriel’s Lodge and church would be retained and redeveloped. A pair of new build four-storey blocks will be built 🧱

Masonry work for the new builds will start in July, with the superstructure planned for October.

Neil Allen, MD quoted “Cara have been working with McLaren Construction, McLaren Properties and @SimpsonHaugh_architects for upto a year to get the design and cost right on this lovely looking scheme. We have worked on VE options without the integrity of the design being compromised, we are now looking forward to getting our team on site to carry out the works and forge a new relationship with a great team in McLaren”
