The programme of works included a new reception area and WC’s on each floor, the installation of a new façade, the replacement of curtain walling and the creation of a new entrance for a bank branch on the ground floor.


  • Creation of a two storey reception area
  • Creation of a new front entrance for both the bank branch and main office building
  • Installation of curtain walling and a new façade
  • Refurbishment of WC’s on each floor and shower rooms on the ground floor
  • Refurbishment of lifts and staircase including new balustrades
  • M&E works including the installation of Air Handling Units on the roof level

The project was located on a main pedestrian route through Manchester City Centre, with close proximity to a live Metrolink line. Careful phasing of works, excellence communication and collaborative working with multiple stakeholders, including Metrolink, were key to overcoming logistical challenges.
