    My interview with Property Week

    14 August 2017
    A 5 minute read by Tom Bloxham

    I recently met with Helen Crane from Property Week for a catch up and a chance for me to tell her all about our plans.

    The 3-page interview (which can be read here) looked back to when we began “developing trendy loft apartments in former industrial buildings in Manchester and Liverpool city centres”, apartments which defined our “signature style” right through to where we are today with House.

    It outlined how we are “ready to challenge perception” with House as “one of the first developers to launch a major push into modular construction”; it stated that the concept is “making waves in the property industry”.

    It also gave me a chance to talk about our plans to turn the Office Village in Salford Quays into the Boat Shed. A “creative and ambitious” vision which allows us to take on the last bastion of building types; we’ve done Georgian buildings, we’ve done Victorian buildings, we’ve done Art Deco buildings, we’ve done concrete 1960s buildings and this is one of those ugly 1990s office - for which we’re taking inspiration from Berlin artist studios to make it a much more funky office space.
