An office development, twice as high as the 1960s office it replaced, targetting international business relocating from London

The brief was to redevelop this extremely restricted, historically sensitive site to deliver high quality Grade A workspace within a building of significant architectural merit. It needed to address the challenges of the local context while also offering large open-plan accommodation that allowed flexibility and adaptability for either a single occupier or multiple tenants.

The building was required to respect the principles of sustainable development and achieve a BREEAM ‘excellent’ rating. There was also a desire to create a ground floor that would provide a vibrant mix of uses in addition to the workspace, helping to establish a strong dialogue with the civic square and Manchester’s best new business address.
