Major Manchester contract gives Centrick foothold in city

A major contract to manage nearly 600 city centre apartments has given residential and commercial property specialist Centrick its first foothold in Manchester as it continues to implement its national expansion strategy.

Centrick’s building and estate management division has been instructed at Spectrum, in Blackfriars Road, Salford, by the development’s residents’ management company (RMC).

Spectrum, which has 578 apartments over eight blocks, is one of the largest single developments of its kind in Manchester. The new contract is a coup for Centrick, said building and estate management director Sarah Hammond.

“Spectrum is our first instruction in Manchester and gives us that all important first foothold in the city. Our team will be based at our new Manchester hub in Deansgate and will deliver many improvements to services, safety, estate management and transparency while offering excellent value for money for leaseholders.

“We are grateful to Cable Management, the RMC, for putting their faith in us and we are determined to demonstrate our considerable experience and expertise,” said Sarah.

Birmingham-based Centrick is investing more than £1 million this year as it recruits around 50 staff to deliver services from new regional offices in Sheffield and Gerrard’s Cross, as well as city hubs in Manchester, Portsmouth, and Nottingham.

More hubs at key locations are in the pipeline. Centrick’s building and estate management and build to rent teams will grow to more than 70 by the end of the year, handling a portfolio of over 350 developments comprising around 20,000 homes. 

Centrick chairman James Ackrill said: “Winning the instruction to provide building and estate management services at Spectrum is a major milestone for Centrick and a huge vote of confidence in our team. Not only is it our first contract in the exciting city of Manchester, but it is also the largest development of apartments in the region. What a great way to announce our arrival.”

He added: “The launch of our hub at Deansgate means we have a local team which is able to forge stronger working relationships with the RMC and our network of local contractors.”
