Located next to Manchester Airport, this development had a jet fuel line passing through the site which feeds all the fuel to the airport. This was very high risk to the project and airport, to mitigate this a concrete protection slab was installed over the length of the fuel line.

Winvic imported 26,000m3 of material to build up the levels above the fuel line and installed retaining walls to three sections of the site.

Winvic maintained communication with the airport and operated under their permitting system for the use of cranes on site.
