Budenberg Haus Projekte, Altrincham

Urban Splash acquired the site of the former Budenberg Gauge factory adjacent to the Bridgewater canal in 1999.

A series of Victorian industrial buildings were demolished to enable a new residential development comprising 320 new high quality apartments.
The existing three storey Budenberg building was retained, converted and extended. The conversion included new internal framing and floors, a new steel frame extension to the rear constructed off piled foundations, and restoring the masonry shell and clock tower. Completed in 2004 this phase of the project won numerous awards, including an Institute of Structural Engineers North West Region Award in 2006.

Two new buildings comprising 260 dwellings with a large underground car park were designed using a steel-framed superstructure leaning out over the canal. Profiled precast floors were designed and are left exposed in the apartments. Steel sheet piles form the basement car park retaining walls constructed using the ‘silent’ pile technique into the underlying saturated sands. This phase was completed in 2006.
