Worktops leverage Levenshulme housing project
A housing scheme in Levenshulme, Greater Manchester has maximised budgets and installation times thanks to specification of surfaces from Maxtop Quartz. The Black Onyx Sparkle Maxtop Quartz worktop was selected by MCI Developments and has been installed within six of the 42 properties.
Allen Burns, commercial manager of MCI Developments, comments: "We offered to try the Maxtop Quartz surface because the housing scheme is located close to the Maxtop headquarters. We're always looking at new and innovative products, so wanted to give them a try.
"We were looking for a product that was durable and easy on the eye and Maxtop definitely fit the criteria.
"We ordered 39 metres of the product and were really happy with how easy it was to install - it was done in no time, which meant that we could quickly move forward with other fit out."
Fitted within the six homes which will be made available for private sale, the housing scheme will also include 22 homes for affordable rent and 14 properties for shared ownership sale. Priority for the properties will be given to people who currently live or work locally and existing social housing tenants.
"As with projects of this nature, costs were tight and we've been able to get the finish we were looking for within our strict budget," continues Allen. "We trust the durability of the surface will make it money well spent."
