1 Portland Street, Manchester
To refurbish a 1970s office block in a prime location in Manchester City Centre. The existing building was about tobecome vacant and the requirement was to make it more attractive to potential lessees.The existing fit-out was poor quality and dated. The exterior was failing to sit comfortably with its
revived urban location.
We were briefed to create a mixed use environment which would be high quality, mid-price and offering retail at ground floor level with offices above. The building was to remain ‘sealed’ and air conditioning was to be incorporated within the tight floor to ceiling space.
Our solution was to entirely remodel this important corner of Manchester City Centre, extending the building at the top floor and utilising the dramatic views across Piccadilly Gardens. Throughout the rest of the building we replaced all existing glazing to floor level to create a more translucent building. Air conditioning was incorporated using chilled beams (a first in the North of England).
The reception was particularly dramatic featuring high quality polished plaster and black walnut joinery. A stylish welcome for potential tenants and visitors alike.
The scheme was completed on time and on budget. Fit-out works followed on for the ground floor retail units which have now all successfully been completed.
