The properties are being developed for market rent and the letting and management of apartments will be undertaken by the Forviva Group's commercial subsidiary ForLiving. As the owner of the site, ForHousing will be the ultimate client for the scheme, though it will be contracting through the ForViva’s Group’s development vehicle, ForViva DevCo Limited. Accordingly, ForViva DevCo will be the ‘Employer’ under the Contract. The homes to be constructed under the contract are a mixture of studio, 1 bed, 2 bed and 3 bed apartments and 3 bed and 4 bed duplex apartments. There are also 3 x commercial units facing onto Ordsall Lane and 95 x undercover car parking spaces. The employers agent on the scheme will be Savills and it will be a condition of the contract that the main contractor appoints liberty (an entity within the ForViva Group) to undertake all the M&E works under a sub-contract arrangement. It is also a requirement that the architect and structural engineers namely Falconer Chester Hall and Clancy Consulting Engineers respectively, will be novated to and be employed by the successful design and build contractor. As the main contractor, the selected contractor will have sole responsibility for the delivery of the contract and will be required to manage and co-ordinate its supply chain (including consultants, sub-contractors and suppliers) accordingly.
