Residential Case Study
Canon Green Court, Salford
Canon Green Court is a large residential scheme in Greater Manchester refurbishing an iconic 1960s high-rise tower block on Salford’s skyline and building an 11-story building containing 108 one and two-bedroom apartments. This development is the largest affordable housing development in the area, with the new building joining two pre-existing blocks that have been upgraded. The site is named after Canon Peter Green’s pen name, ‘Artifex’, a published writer who dedicated his life to supporting poor communities. The refurbishment has a simple building shape with a high-quality terracotta rain-screen façade, combined photo voltaic on the roof and shared high-quality placemaking landscape.
Cellecta ScreedBoard 28 was specified by Corstorphine & Wright for this project due to its excellent impact and airborne acoustic performance. ScreedBoard was recognised in the housebuilder awards and took home the winner’s award for ‘best internal/interior product’.
Willmott Dixon was awarded the contract to construct this 6,500m² development.
