1 Centenary Square wins at RICS Awards 2019, West Midlands

1 Centenary Square wins at RICS Awards 2019, West Midlands

We are delighted that our project 1 Centenary Square has won the ‘Commercial’ category at the RICS Awards 2019, West Midlands.

1 Centenary Square, now home to HSBC is part of Arena Central, a £500 million mixed-use development scheme in Birmingham city centre being developed by Arena Central Developments LLP, a joint venture led by Kier. Hannan Associates are proud to be providing Building Services Engineering consultancy for the development scheme.

“The judges were amazed by the new HSBC building as a bespoke solution to the demands of new banking regulations and provides a fitting solution at the heart of the bank’s birthplace in Birmingham City Centre. The building – delivered by Arcadis, Make Architects and Galliford Try – nestles in-between neighbouring listed buildings without detracting from their presence due to its limited height and woven external cladding.

The internal fit out promotes an innovative and collaborative working environment with the maximum use of natural daylight. This building sets a very high benchmark for HSBC’s global portfolio to aspire to.” https://www.rics.org/uk/training-events/rics-awards/rics-awards-west-midlands/

The 210,000 sq ft, 10 storey, Grade A office building designed by Make Architects accommodates around 2,5000 employees, providing high quality flexible working and break out spaces.

“I am very proud to have led the Hannan team on this major corporate HQ project, which has helped bring HSBC back to its roots and in turn raise the profile of Birmingham. The success of 1 Centenary Square has helped secure further development at Arena Central, which we are very happy to be a part of. We very much enjoy being a part of this team and I believe that this award is a well-deserved reflection of the hard work and commitment that everyone put into making this project a success.” Jamie Hall – Hannan Associates

Hannan Associates are very pleased to also be building services consultants for the neighbouring No. 3 Arena Central, a 240,000sq ft 14 storey office building currently under construction, which has been pre-let to HM Revenue and Customs.

Coed Pella Takes the ‘Regeneration’ Prize

We are very proud to have been MEP Services Engineering Consultants for Coed Pella which won the ‘Regeneration’ category last night at the RICS Awards 2019, Wales.

Andrew Carrington from our team attended the event to support the project and our client Muse Developments: “It has been a privilege to work on such a landmark scheme to provide key regeneration benefits to one of North Wales’ largest towns.”

The building serves as Conwy Borough Council’s new Civic Offices in Colwyn Bay, which was completed in November 2018. We worked alongside AHR Architects, Avid Property Consultants, Capita, Arup & main contractor Bowmer & Kirkland.

“RICS judges said the team behind the project had created a state-of-the-art civic complex, relocating significant numbers of staff, and ultimately helping improve the number of businesses establishing in the town centre, with declining vacancy rates”.

Congratulations to all the winners and those shortlisted on the evening.
