The Hallmark, Manchester - Build Update, June 2020

We are pleased to share with you the latest update from Delph on how the Hallmark development has been progressing since lockdown.

With the impact of Covid-19 affecting so many, Delph's construction team, Forty/8 Developments have worked hard to continue where possible.  Even though lockdown has slowed down or stopped production on many building sites, Forty/8 have tried their utmost to continue with The Hallmark, albeit with reduced manpower and some delays in obtaining materials due to supply issues.

Delph have constantly monitored and worked with their construction teams, at times with a skeleton staff, ensuring the safety of their employees alongside the continuation of construction process. 

The construction team are progressing well, with kitchens and bathrooms installed up to the 11/12th floors. However, the delays have impacted on the handover date from the contractors, which is now anticipated to take place September/October 2020, with the individual apartment completion dates to be scheduled thereafter.

Unfortunately, access for non-construction staff is currently limited to out of working hours, so it is still very difficult to arrange access for surveyors.  Delph are putting a plan in place to arrange access for surveyors from August, which should still give you ample time to get a mortgage (if required) in place for completion.

Delph understand that this may be disappointing for some.  However, they will continue to adapt during these unprecedented times, in accordance with the government guidelines.

We will continue to monitor the progress closely with Delph and update you accordingly.  In the meantime, unless we hear otherwise we will be contacting your mortgage broker in the coming weeks, advising them to commence with the mortgage process at the beginning of August.

In the meantime, please see images of the show apartment below.
