2 Stockport Exchange Complete

2 Stockport Exchange Complete

The latest phase of development at the award winning Stockport Exchange is now complete. 2 Stockport Exchange is a six-storey, 61,500 sq ft, Grade A office soon to be home to global chemical company BASF, who will take 21,500 sq ft of the office building as their UK headquarters.

Hannan Associates provided Building Services Engineering & BREEAM consultancy for this project, the third phase of development work at Stockport Exchange.

2 Stockport Exchange incorporates environmentally friendly design features such as a green roof system, secure cycle store, showers and lockers facilities to encourage people to cycle to work and low energy LED lighting throughout. Features include the use of natural daylight and enhanced building fabric performance to minimise the building’s carbon emissions, creating a reduction in its indirect impact on climate change. The building has been designed to achieve a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating and an EPC ‘A’ rating.

We are proud to be part of Muse Development’s team for this development and witness first hand the transformation of this area over the last ten years to a high quality commercial quarter incorporating attractive public realm, a hotel, retail, improved car parking and better connectivity between the station and the rest of the town centre.

Muse Developments are Stockport Council’s development partner for Stockport Exchange, which forms part of the council’s wider £1bn town centre regeneration plan for Stockport.  Other members of the project team include Aedas ArchitectsRPS GroupGillespies, Buro Four, Curtins Consulting and main contractor GMI Construction Group.

Planning Submitted for Store Street Manchester

Planning Submitted for Store Street Manchester

Amidst all the difficulties, it has been great to see positive news emerging from our industry; signs that deals are still being done, clients pushing forward with development plans and the planning system still moving. 

We were very pleased to see the Store Street residential scheme submitted for planning in April. 

Store Street is an affordable housing scheme situated along the Ashton Canal in the Piccadilly Village area of Manchester. The scheme, being developed by Clarion Housing and H20 Urban, includes 63 new apartments and 3 town houses, which are to be constructed over 11 storeys. 

Hannan Associates have been appointed to develop the MEP services design, undertake design stage Part L Compliance checks and to produce an Energy Statement in support of the planning application which has been submitted to Manchester City Council. 

The apartments consist of one and two bed types and are contained within a triangular shaped block on the lower levels, with a more traditional block tower construction emanating at six storeys high. Each of the 2-bed town houses is enveloped by the building and are constructed over ground and the first level, with each being accessed directly off Store Street. 

At handover, fifty percent of the car parking spaces will be supplied by electric vehicle charge points, with passive provision for the remaining 50% of spaces. Secure cycle storage has also been included and a proportion of ‘green space’ incorporated into the scheme design by provision of an accessible terrace area on the sixth level.

It is currently proposed that an ‘all-electric’ services strategy will be adopted for both the apartments and the town houses in order to help future-proof the homes and contribute towards Manchester’s 2038 Net Zero Carbon Target.

Other members of the team include AHR Architects, WSP, Chroma Consulting and Walker Sime. 

Hannans have supported our clients with the delivery of residential accommodation to the value of around £400M in recent years. We have played a key role in developments for the For Sale, Private Rental, High End, Social and Retirement markets.

Hello, from our homes to yours!

Hello, from our homes to yours!

How is everyone doing six weeks into lock-down?

Team Hannan have settled into working from home and everyone is doing a brilliant job of maintaining ‘business as usual.’ With a little help from the miracle of modern technology we remain apart yet connected. 

We are increasingly thankful to all the key workers, selflessly risking their safety to continue to provide essential services for us during this time and we feel very proud of how UK communities & businesses have come together to support each other and help fight the Covid-19 pandemic.

We are thankful for our strong client base and the interesting projects that are keeping us busy and we are each making the most of the additional free time we do have to reflect and take stock; learn new skills & hobbies; exercise; bake; read and catch up with friends and family.

Although maintaining a positive outlook towards the unknown territory that still faces us, we very much look forward to things gradually returning to something even vaguely resembling the ‘old normal’ and seeing people in the flesh again soon!

We think that it’s important to maintain contact with one another now more than ever, so if you fancy a virtual coffee and catch up or perhaps have a query about a project please get in touch…….

Stay safe everyone!
