Hannan Associates are delighted to have been part of the team involved in the redevelopment of Riverside House at New Bailey, Salford for our client The English Cities Fund.
Riverside House is a four storey, 11,000 sq ft office building, which includes the retention of two sides of the 19th Century facade from the pre-existing building. The retention of this Victorian Gothic style facade gives Riverside House a real sense of place and history and helps to create a gateway to the New Bailey development as a whole.
As part of our duties we provided MEP Perfomance Duties for the CAT A installations which expanded to include the CAT B fit out for Muse Developments who are taking 2 floors of the building.
The MEP services strategy was based on chilled beams providing comfort cooling with exposed services throughout the open plan office areas. We carried out thermal modelling and system optioneering to conclude the best scheme to meet the Client requirements.
The building that sat on the site before the new Riverside House is thought to date back to around the mid 1800’s when it was the Royal Veteran Tavern located behind the site of the Old Bailey Prison. The Royal Veteran Tavern closed in around 1939 after which it is thought to have been used as a workshop and then unfortunately fell into a state of disrepair.
Riverside House and New Bailey are part of The English Cities Fund regeneration plans for ‘Salford Central’ a 44 acre, £650 million regeneration scheme set to transform a key part of the city.
Offices, in all forms, have been at the core of our business for over 30 years. Whether it be speculative offices designed to attract potential tenants or highly customised Headquarter office space designed to meet the specific requirements of the occupier. Our engineers understand what our clients and occupiers expect and need from the 21st Century workplace.

We are very pleased to be providing Building Services Consultancy for the multi-storey car park at Paddington Village, Liverpool for Morgan Sindall Construction.
Paddington Village is part of Liverpool City Council’s £1bn flagship expansion site within Liverpool’s Knowledge Quarter, which will be home to education, health, science and technology facilities as well as residential, hotel, leisure and retail.
The latest plans for the car park feature 12 storeys and 1,245 parking bays, with 12 electric vehicle charging bays and parking for cycles and motorcycles too. The design also includes sprinklers, fire fighting shafts and fighting lifts.
The car park will have a combined heat and power (CHP) energy centre at ground level, which will reduce the scheme’s carbon footprint and will provide district heating and private wire power to the wider development.
Once a thriving boom town of the industrial revolution and birthplace of the co-operative movement, Rochdale’s history, architecture and geographic location make it an important Greater Manchester town. However, following the decline of its cotton mills and manufacturing industry the town suffered economic downturn and neglect.
In a bid to turn the fortunes of this town around, Rochdale Borough Council have been actively working to improve the town centre for shoppers, visitors and businesses with a £250 million regeneration programme.
One of several projects undertaken as part of this masterplan is Rochdale Riverside, a new 200,000 sq ft retail and leisure quarter where occupiers will include Marks and Spencer, H&M, JD Sorts, River Island, Next, New Look and Boots. The retail complex will also feature a six-screen Reel Cinema. The project is progressing well on site and is due for completion Spring 2020.
Once complete it is hoped that Rochdale Riverside will contribute £17m a year to the local economy.
