Barrel Yard Project, Manchester

In Latest Projects, News by admin

Forming the second phase of our development of the former Hyde’s Brewery, the Barrel Yard provides a variety of options for residents including 17 townhouses of 3-4 bedrooms and 25 apartments of 1-3 bedrooms.


The development offers attractive, sustainable homes for those who want to live close to the city centre but desire a quiet, secure environment. The communal area, private courtyards, private and shared parking spaces ensure compliance with the required amount of amenity space: each townhouse has a front and rear garden with private parking space, while for the apartment block there is a communal garden and car park. The existing building, Hyde’s Brewery which sits adjacent to Barrel Yard has directly influenced the design and development of the scheme. Attention has been paid to the use of similar materials matching the original brick work. The homes are arranged around an organic environment to avoid repetition allowing for perspective to constantly change. The interior specification of the houses and apartments is to a high and modern standard.


William Dyer Electrical are excited to be chosen again for the final phase of this project.

The systems installed include the following:

  • All electrical installations (small power and lighting-emergency lighting)
  • Mains Distribution
  • CCTV
  • AV
  • Telecoms
  • Data Networking
  • Fire Protection
  • Security
  • Ventilation systems
  • Solar PV
The Barrel Yard is the new residential scheme located minutes from Manchester City Centre. The close proximity makes it the perfect setting for young professionals and families who want to be close to Deansgate’s boutique shops and Oxford Road’s theatres and music venues. Manchester is the UK’s second largest urban economy. Famed for its music venues, shopping, Premiership football clubs, and architecture, the diverse social scene in Manchester and its surrounding areas has enabled the city centre to become one of the most sought-after addresses in the country.
