Fresh from its win for ‘Public/Private Partnership of the Year’ at the Insider North West Property Awards, Stockport Exchange is a finalist for Greater Manchester’s Chamber of Commerce ‘Building of the Year’ award.
The aim of the award is to recognise a building’s contribution to Greater Manchester in terms of construction and development. This could include the building’s significance to the City Region, its impact on the local economy, its effect on the local community, its importance in terms of urban regeneration and environmental enhancement, its design excellence, or its contribution to urban design and townscape.
The Building of the Year Award will be presented on 19 October at the Chamber’s Property and Construction Annual Dinner.
Hannan Associates were involved in the design and construction of the 50,000 sq ft office building, as well as a 115 bedroom Holiday Inn Express hotel, and a 1,000 space multi storey car park at Stockport Exchange
Award winning residential project Timekeepers Square is once again in the spotlight as it is nominated for The Sunday Times British Home Awards ‘Development of the Year’ (under 200 homes)
The scheme was developed by English Cities fund (ECF) – a joint venture between Muse Developments, Legal & General and the Homes & Communities Agency working in conjunction with Salford City Council.
Timekeepers square previously won ‘Best Built Residential Scheme’ (multi unit) and was runner up in ‘Best Overall Scheme’ at the 2017 Manchester Architects Awards.
All 36 homes at the development are now completed and occupied after keys to the final property were handed over to its new owners.
Hannan Associates provided MEP performance duties for the scheme which forms part of ECF’s Salford Central regeneration scheme around Chapel Street.
The British Homes Awards, run by Haymarket Media Group celebrate the quality of the homes and communities being created in the UK, showcasing the best in design to key players in the property market and central and local government.
The winners will be announced on 21 September during an awards ceremony at the Grosvenor Square Hotel, London.
