Key facts & Challenges

The University of Salford has invested £81m in new student accommodation blocks and leisure facilities - including a cinema room for students, teaching staff and the local community. A consortium called Salford Village Limited was established to deliver the design, build and future management of the accommodation. The main contractor, Graham Construction, appointed Siniat as it's key drylining and external sheathing board supplier. The design brief was to create a distinctive new part of the city, with the target of achieving an 'excellent' BREEAM rating, setting high standards for sustainability and energy efficiency.

Installation phase

The two biggest installation challenges was the very tight timescale and meeting the BREEAM 'excellent' rating. Working in partnership with our technical team from the early planning stage, Graham Construction chose 26,700m2 of Weather Defence to satisfy multiple requirements.
