Congratulations to our client, Muse Developments, who have been shortlisted for two awards at this year’s Insider Yorkshire Property Awards.

Premier Farnell, the technology distributor, have invested in a 360,000sqft distribution unit at the business park, which will stock over 420,000 products.

Logic Leeds Business Park consists of a 100 acre manufacturing & distribution park located within the Aire Valley Enterprise Zone. The business park provides high quality industrial & warehouse units, in a fully landscaped environment, with immediate connectivity to the M1 motorway.
Previously completed developments at Logic Leeds include; the [email protected] Development, which consists of three industrial units totalling 100,000 sqft, which have been bought by the City Council from Muse and were completed by GMI Construction in July, as well as the 50,000 sqft John Lewis customer delivery distribution hub and the 80,000 sqft Amazon distribution unit.
Hannan Associates are very proud to have worked alongside Muse Developments in delivering infrastructure masterplanning and MEP performance duties for the entire Logic Leeds Business Park scheme as well as providing Tenant Liaison duties where required.
Sunday 22nd July was the launch day for the new Steve Burne Rooms at Ronald McDonald House Manchester.
Three spaces within the existing Manchester house have been refurbished to create 3 new 6 person family bedrooms along with an external reflection area via fund raising driven by Steve Burne.
The additional bedrooms will provide over 1,000 additional nights home from home accommodation for families with children in Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.
Hannans were part of the construction team who donated their services for the design and construction of the refurbishment works. Due to the extent of funds raised to date, further refurbishment works are targeted at the house to create a further 2 bedrooms by converting existing laundry spaces.
The Ronald McDonald House Charity helps families to stay close to their child in hospital while they undergo medical treatment by giving them a warm and welcoming environment where they can stay for as long as they need.

We are very proud that two of our projects, Stockport Exchange and Timekeepers Square won their categories at the North West RICS Awards held in Manchester last week.
Stockport Exchange, Phase 2, which our client Muse developed in partnership with Stockport Council, won the Commercial category. “RICS judges said the buildings have rejuvenated a tired and under-used leisure scheme into an attractive and vibrant new commercial quarter, and brought employment to over 250 people.”
Timekeepers Square, the second residential development in the area from the English Cities Fund – a joint venture between Muse Developments, Legal & General and Homes England, won the Residential category. “RICS judges said the success of the scheme – which has acted as a catalyst for the next phase of residential development in the area – and the positive response from residents and prospective homeowners, is testament to the collaborative project team.”
Congratulations to all the winners and those shortlisted on the evening.
The event coincided with RICS 150th anniversary, in which they have set a focus to highlight their public interest responsibility with their Pledge150 campaign.
Good luck to our clients & fellow project team members at the 2018 North West RICS Awards where our projects The Slate Yard, New Bailey, Timekeepers Square, and Stockport Exchange are all up for awards.
