Britplas returns to Discovery Quay

Britplas has been awarded a contract by Graham Construction to complete the design and installation of the building envelope to the second phase of ‘Discovery’ student accommodation at Salford Quays in Manchester.

The 15 storey, 457 bedroom scheme will feature Kawneer windows and curtain walling as well as 6,000 sq m of aluminium rainscreen cladding.

The award follows on from Britplas’ successful completion of the first phase of Discovery Quay in 2020. Work commences on site this summer and the project is due for completion in summer 2023.
