2020 – A Year to Forget or a year to Remember?

2020 – A Year to Forget or a year to Remember?

It has been a pleasure working with you during the last year and we look forward to working together in 2021.

The continued momentum & success of the projects we are a part of during 2020 is true testament to the strength and drive of our industry. We value the relationships and enjoy the challenges we face as part of the various teams in which we have a place. 

We made this video to reflect on all that has happened this year ……..  

From everyone at Hannan Associates we would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!

NABERS UK Launched

NABERS UK Launched

The 26th November 2020 saw the official launch of the NABERS UK energy rating system.

NABERS UK is a new scheme for rating the operational energy efficiency of UK offices, which will  play a vital role in bridging the performance gap between the design and in-use energy performance of offices in the UK and create much needed transparency for the market. 

The NABERS UK scheme has been developed by Better Building Partnership, via their Design for Performance initiative, in close collaboration with the Australian NABERS programme.  

The system measures and verifies the actual energy use of existing offices, providing a rating from 1-6 stars to help building owners accurately target, measure and communicate the energy performance of their buildings, demonstrating whether they are on a net zero carbon trajectory. 

For new office developments & refurbishments, developers will be able to use the Design for Performance process to target a NABERS Energy rating at the design stage, which can be used to verify performance when the building is occupied.

 

Hannan Associates are very proud to be working as part of Legal & General Investment Management’s team for the design of the Ralli Quays office and hotel scheme in Salford. This project is one of only 14 office developments in the UK pioneering Better Building Partnership’s Design for Performance initiative.

Ralli Quays Thermal Model

As part of our package on this development we are utilising complex thermal modelling software to accurately simulate HVAC plant and control networks for each building to ascertain the predicted in use operational energy consumptions. This is vital in providing a building-integrated approach where the HVAC systems and building are assessed as a whole, allowing all gains/losses, heat transfer and thermal mass in the building to be accounted for alongside system performance.

The output  for in use energy is also used to assess the building’s future proofing against the UKGBC and Paris target emissions.

The launch of NABERS UK comes at a critical time, as the built environment comes under increasing pressure to meet net zero carbon targets and we await the imminent release of the UK government’s energy performance white paper.

If you would like to speak to us about Design for Performance and your net zero operational carbon goals please drop us an email or give us a call.

Two New Bailey Square Office Complete

Two New Bailey Square Office Complete

The recently completed Two New Bailey Square will be the second new office building at Salford Central’s New Bailey development. This 188,500 sq ft office building is the first scheme designed by architects Alford Hall Monaghan Morris in Greater Manchester.

The 11-storey building includes CAT A open plan office across 10 floors, commercial unit space at ground floor, basement car parking, external roof terrace and a public square and is on target to achieve an A rated Energy Performance Certificate, a BREEAM Excellent rating along with a Wired Score rating of Platinum.

Hannan Associates provided Building Services Engineering Consultancy and BREEAM Assessment for the development. 

Each floor is designed to be sub-divided into two separate tenancies, each area provided with a private external balcony. Simultaneous Variable Refrigerant Flow heating & cooling systems are provided to each tenancy, mechanical fresh air ventilation from roof mounted air handling plant incorporating heat recovery, which offers good flexibility and is easily adaptable to cope with sub-division and high occupant density. 

The client’s design aspirations included exposed services with acoustic rafts to conceal the indoor VRF units and improve the acoustics of the open plan office space. 

Eversheds Sutherland are taking approximately 50,000 sq ft across the part 8th, 9th and 10th floors with BLM LLP signed to occupy first to fourth floors . 

We are proud to be part of the English Cities Fund (tECF) team– a joint venture between Muse Developments, Legal and General and Homes England.

Other members of the team included Abacus, RPS, Integra Consulting and main contractor Bowmer & Kirkland.

Savoy Cinema Comes to Doncaster!

Savoy Cinema Comes to Doncaster!

The six-screen Savoy cinema and five restaurant development at Doncaster’s Civic & Cultural quarter is now complete.

The £8.5m scheme has been developed by Doncaster Council as part of the wider Urban Centre Masterplan helping to revitalise the Waterdale area of Doncaster town centre. Hannan Associates are proud to have been part of the team to bring this new leisure complex to Doncaster, which will contribute towards the ongoing regeneration of this area.

We provided Building Services Engineering and BREEAM assessment for the project and were very pleased to join The Harris Partnership, Rex Procter & Partners, JPG Group and main contractor the Lindum Group on the project team.

Visitors to the new cinema will experience luxury recliner and rocker seating, Vertex viewing with next-generation 4K laser projection and Dolby Atmos immersive sound.

 

The project has benefited from £635,000 in funding from the Sheffield City Region Local Growth Fund, is one of many projects contributing towards the wider regeneration of Doncaster and it is hoped that this new facility will create over 100 jobs.

Hannan Associates have over 35 years’ commercial & technical experience of Building Services & Utilities Engineering solutions for strategic development schemes focused around urban regeneration and placemaking. These mixed use developments seek to create an established sense of place and identity for areas of our towns & cities which have previously been neglected and underused, turning them into places where people want to live, work and play.

 If you would like to speak to us about a future project or just have a general chat please do give a member of our team below a call or email.
