Lendlease - Potato Wharf, Manchester

About the project:

The objective for MERLYN was to show that the company was capable of meeting the strict deadline for the big project while also delivering a high-quality specification product on budget.

The Challenge:


Set against the historic waterways of Castlefield, Manchester, Potato Wharf represents the future of urban living. The canal-side neighborhood of four apartment blocks blends open green space with modern amenities and a nod to the industrial heritage.
In 2019, globally integrated real estate and investment group, Lendlease, set about phase 2 of the highly popular development.


MERLYN were tasked to demonstrate the company’s ability to deliver a high quality specification product on budget, including project delivery and account management that could meet the large-scale project’s demanding timeline.


The Solution:


MERLYN was the only manufacturer with the stock and delivery management system able to meet the project’s large and tight delivery schedule. After a successful tender process, Lendlease selected MERLYN to deliver its innovative 6mm IQ sliding shower door, Touchstone shower tray and MB2 bath screen across the development’s 200 homes.
The easy-fit, one-person installation of the IQ shower screen makes it perfect for large scale developments with tight fit-out schedules. The slot and lock frame system requires no screws or  drilling and features simple click-on rollers.



The Result:

MERLYN’s specification solution secured a prestigious large-scale project by providing a realistic pricing structure and vigorous delivery and installation plan, thanks to the support of Cuplas Supplies.

Continued on-time project delivery and outstanding customer service is cementing a new partnership with the Lendlease team, helping to open up future opportunities with projects in Liverpool.
