HE Simm Group Completes MEP Installation for Third Phase of Luxury-Living X1 Manchester Waters Complex

The HE Simm Group has successfully completed works on the third block of luxury apartments at X1 Manchester Waters.

‘Block C’ of the Pomona Island development has opened with the state-of-the-art facility offering a selection of stunning Studio, 1, 2 and 3-bedroom apartments across 14 floors.

Built by Vermont, for client X1, Manchester Waters will eventually bring together 742 apartments across five residential blocks. The company has now successfully delivered the MEP installation at the first three – a total of 406 apartments.

The apartments are part of the Pomona Strand Masterplan, located between the successful Manchester residential neighbourhood of Castlefield and the prestigious Salford Quays development at MediaCityUK.

HE Simm Engineering provided Design & Build MEP, with sister company HESIS providing Fire & Security installation. The team became involved from concept, working with a wider design team – including the architect and structural engineers – to ensure a successful outcome across all three buildings.

Offering a modern living experience with the added luxury of selected apartments featuring balconies with picturesque waterside views, the development is situated on the thriving Pomona Island, boasting excellent connectivity to the city centre via the tram.

HE Simm Group has enjoyed a successful relationship with Vermont and X1 for more than a decade, with this project representing one of the last remaining large scale regeneration opportunities located close to the heart of Manchester.

Lee Smith, Operations Manager for the project, said: “With the construction landscape changing, this was at times a challenging project for all involved. That said, it’s testament to the team who collaboratively embraced the challenge and continued in the same vein as the previous two blocks, delivering an excellent, high-quality scheme.

“We are both proud and delighted to have completed these works, with the on-site team further enhancing the reputation of HE Simm’s reputation for high quality.”

The apartments come fully furnished to a high specification, ensuring that every aspect of living space provides sophistication and functionality, while all white goods are also included.
