Featured Case Study

DDE have recently completed the BMS across both blocks of one of Manchester’s most exciting developments. The Lancastrian was designed for the build-to-rent market by Hodder & Partners and features an impressive specification including 274 contemporary apartments and two commercial units. To add to this, the development has two residential lounges, a gymnasium, 149 cycle spaces and 60 basement parking spaces.

The development also benefits from being located in the heart of a northern powerhouse, Manchester.

The Trend and Niagara 4 based BMS has been installed to control energy efficient primary heat generation as well and monitoring critical building services and landlord metering.

I’ve worked with Detail Design Engineering over a range of projects, including my latest and largest project. I chose DDE because they are Knowledgeable, proactive and experienced in all aspects of BMS
