The Hulton Square development comprises a compact layout of 250 apartments in Greater Manchester, including the associated services, highways and a park.

The inner-city Ordsall district is undergoing a programme of extensive regeneration, of which Hulton square is a major component, including new highways, schools, leisure facilities, retail, a hotel and the refurbishment of Ordsall Hall. The site has a legacy of earlier development, including redundant services, deep sewers and contaminated land.

An important element of the scheme was to use vibro-piles to strengthen the ground below so that conventional strip foundations could be utilised.
