Exchange Quay is one of the latest developments alongside The Lowery theatre and Media city to be included in the regeneration of Salford Quays. Previously the site of Manchester Docks, Salford Quays became one of the first and largest urban regeneration projects in the United Kingdom following the closure of the dockyards in 1982. The regeneration has since been praised for its success in bringing over £300 million of business into the area as well as thousands of jobs.
Sudstech is completely permeable and can process more than of 50,000 litres of rain water per hour. The Sudstech system suited the aesthetic of the prestigious quay development, whilst offering a fully Suds compliant surface that is extremely low maintenance and guaranteed not to clog.
