Developer Kenmore Properties acquired this landmark, Grade 2 listed building in 2006. Sitting on Manchester City Centre’s busiest junction (Deansgate & Peter Street) a sympathetic external and internal refurbishment scheme was co-ordinated by Surveyors WHR. Contract Services won the project with their £2.6M tender and embarked on a complicated and highly technical contract.
A comprehensive upgrade of the mechanical and electrical services included a unique underfloor air conditioning system which preserved the building’s original features, and a new 12 tonne energy centre which was housed on the roof of the building – the installation procedure closed Deansgate for 10 hours over a Sunday night. No detail was overlook, even to the point of having 100 year old ceramic tiles reproduced for the entrance refurbishment to give the building a comprehensive but tasteful facelift. > back to portfolio
