The Challenge

The site has a number of constraints. Located off Oxford Road the proposed development is bounded by the Oxford Road Station to the Northern Periphery with the River Medlock forming the Southern boundary and the Revolution Bar forming a party wall condition at the Eastern boundary. 

Our Solution

A number of buildings currently occupied the site and these had to be demolished as part of the site clearance, following which our site investigations confirmed the site's suitablity for development.
