Hannan Associates COVID-19 Update

Hannan Associates COVID-19 Update

We would like to update and reassure you that as an organisation it is ‘business as usual’ here at Hannan Associates. 

Whilst the current situation presents significant challenges, we are committed to meeting our ongoing client and project commitments in a manner which follows the Government guidance and provides safe operational conditions for our staff and those of the design and construction teams.

The information below outlines our approach to business continuity and this will be reviewed and updated on an ongoing basis as the situation and Government guidance develops.

Remote Working

From Friday the 20th until further notice our staff will be working primarily from home.

Most people already spend periods working at home so we are not expecting this to have an impact on our ability to support live projects and meet agreed deliverables targets.

Contact with us

Email and all other sharing platforms will all continue working as normal.

Voice contact with our project team members should be made direct using their mobile phone numbers.

If you need assistance with phone or email contact details please email Charlotte Stansfield on [email protected]

Project Meetings

We are well positioned to respond to the need for remote meetings through a variety of conference and dial in technologies.

We are willing to attend small group meetings (5 people or less) if these are considered necessary, until such times as the Government imposes further restrictions on movement. These will be reviewed individually assessing the risks to our staff and other attendees.

Site Inspections

Where sites remain open for visitors, inspections will continue, subject to individual assessment of the risks. During this period our staff will not take part in large group site walk rounds but will carry out the works individually or in small groups. Site contact may also be limited with communication with site personnel by email or other digital means.

Operational Feedback

Whilst we will be doing everything we can to ensure that our service levels continue as normal if you do not think we are achieving this please let us know by contacting the senior project lead who will take the appropriate actions.

As always we would like to thank you for your continued support and loyalty and we wish you and your families all well during this difficult period.

The third and final phase of the Slate Yard Build to Rent scheme at New Bailey Salford has reached its highest point of development at 21 storeys.

The £30M apartment block is the largest of the three residential buildings and includes 21 storeys and 199 apartments with one, two and three bedrooms.

The design of the building and the services strategy utilises energy efficient features throughout to minimise its carbon and environmental footprint and meet the sustainable standards set out in the Part L Building Regulations.

Passive construction techniques in the design of the building include enhanced insulation to limit heat loss and an engineered façade design to maximise the use of natural daylight & passive solar gains but minimise overheating.

The Incorporation of high efficiency systems and effective controls throughout the design will help to further minimise energy usage. These features include: smart heating controls, heat recovery ventilation systems, energy efficient lighting and energy efficient lifts.

Photovoltaic panels have been incorporated into the building design to meet a proportion of the electrical demand.

The Slate Yard is one of several schemes we are involved with as part of the £650m New Bailey development scheme being delivered by The English Cities Fund, a joint venture between Muse Developments, Legal and General and Homes England.

We are proud to be a part of the team delivering this important regeneration scheme which aims to create a gateway between Manchester and Salford and provide business opportunities for large and small organisations.
