River Street Tower is a £110m development just five minutes from Manchester Metropolitan University and Piccadilly Station. Its 792 en-suite bedrooms include shared flats and self-contained studio apartments, all fitted out to a luxurious standard. Facilities include a gym, games room, communal social space, dining area, laundry and cinema.
A seven-strong team from HE Simm worked on site, equally balanced between mechanical and electrical. They were joined by 40–50 HE Simm subcontractors during the first year of the project, with reduced numbers after lockdown.
