A striking addition to the Manchester skyline
We built this iconic 16-storey building containing 325,000ft2 of open plan office space to accommodate the Co-operative’s 3,500 head office employees, sharing 2,800 desks in the building.
The steel-framed structure is supported by cores at each corner and was constructed around a soaring central atrium. Two basement floors include underground car parking, auditorium and fitness facilities.
We used building information modelling (BIM) to create the building before any construction began to highlight any logistic issues likely to arise. This prevented unnecessary wastage of materials and time, making the construction as smooth as possible.
