Hayley is a BREEAM Advisory Professional and has joined Hannan Associates as a BREEAM & Sustainability Consultant. We wish her much luck and happiness in her new role.

Welcome Hayley!

“I like to lead BREEAM from the fore as much as possible, It should be embedded in the project as early as possible to really reap the benefits. I am very passionate about sustainability and driving this as an agenda. The thing I enjoy most is that I am working as a sustainability professional inputting into new buildings and therefore contributing towards achieving a sustainable built environment. I believe in the possibilities of sustainability without detracting from our quality of life and that is the thing I get most excited about.”

Liverpool Paddington Village Car Park

Liverpool Paddington Village Car Park

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.

Regenerating Rochdale

Regenerating Rochdale

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.

Other members of the team include TP Bennett, Arcadis, AECOM, Curtins Consulting and the main contractor is Willmott Dixon.

Once complete it is hoped that Rochdale Riverside will contribute £17m a year to the local economy.

Hannan Associates have over 30 years’ experience of developing building Services engineering solutions for urban regeneration and place-making and have contributed towards the redevelopment of many towns and cities.

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.
