Chapel Wharf

At peak, up to 30 deliveries to site per day were safely and efficiently choregraphed on a ‘just-in-time' basis to the 4 tower cranes which serviced the confined inner-city site.

PCE’s hybriDfMA Living system was used throughout the concept stage allowing the architectural design to be developed around a standard ‘kit of parts’ that were then interchangeable and reconfigurable to create multiple layout iterations. Construction was completed using PCE Ltd’s hybriDfMA hyTower® system.

This approach maximised efficiency in each of the hybriDfMA stages and produced an extremely cost-effective solution along with all the other benefits an offsite system brings to a complex inner-city project, such as significant reductions in onsite man hours, vehicle movements, noise, dust, general disruption and most importantly programme.


Rohan Evans, Sir Robert McAlpine’s Project Director for the Salford Chapel Wharf project:

''PCE are a team that are proactive in their approach to safety and that everyone goes home safely. Not only this, but their maturity and commitment shone through by showing great leadership when participating on the Project Safety Leadership Team.''



PCE’s site and management team were constantly dedicated to onsite safety procedures: this was acknowledged by the Main Contractor, with PCE frequently heading the safety leader board and numerous site safety awards.


PCE’s kit of parts approach enabled all structural components, including the pre-glazed balconies, to be manufactured offsite to meet the high quality levels specified by the client.


Four apartment blocks consisting of 7,569 offsite engineered components were delivered to the busy inner city site and installed within 82 calendar weeks.


PCE’s HybriDfMA Living System approach guaranteed cost effectiveness and certainty of delivery for the structures and façades, without the need for wasteful processes and materials such as scaffolding, falsework and back-propping.
