S4B consortium has been selected by Manchester City Council, UK to carry out a £100m Brunswick regeneration project in east Manchester.

The Equitix-led S4B consortium, which includes Galliford Try and Contour Homes, secured the contract to deliver the 25-year regeneration project.

S4B consortium will deliver more than 500 new homes including 200 council houses and 300 for private sale.

Infrastructure works and re-modelling will be carried out by Galliford Try Infrastructure.

"We are very pleased to reach an agreement with Manchester City Council."

Repairs and maintenance contractor, Mears, will refurbish a further 654 homes and provide on-going facilities management services.

The regeneration project will feature the improvement of Gartside Gardens, a play area on Glenbarry Close, a community allotment and orchard area and new road links.

Plans also include a the build of a retail area with local shops and amenities, a neighbourhood office and 60-bed sheltered accommodation and day-care centre.

Galliford Try chief executive Greg Fitzgerald said S4B is already well advanced in its planning.

"We are very pleased to reach an agreement with Manchester City Council, our consortium partners and other project stakeholders, to secure what will be an important regeneration project for Greater Manchester," Fitzgerald said.

Work on the project is due to start in 2014 and the first council homes are expected to be completed by spring 2015.

The 25-year Brunswick regeneration project was approved in June 2012 but had been delayed for several years.

Funding was agreed by the Homes and Communities Agency, under its housing private finance initiative programme (PFI) in August 2007.

The Brunswick project was one of the 13 PFI housing projects that the UK government agreed to support, following its spending review in November 2010.
