Ronald McDonald House Charity

Ronald McDonald House Charity

One of our newest clients is Ronald McDonald House Charity, who we are very proud to have been providing Building Services Design consultancy for during the last year at their Manchester and Oxford sites.

The 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.

At the Manchester Ronald McDonald House three spaces within the existing Manchester house have been refurbished to create five new six person family bedrooms along with an external reflection area. These brilliant new facilities were achieved because of the unrelenting fund raising efforts driven by Steve Burne and AEW Architects:  https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/steveburneroom

The additional bedrooms will provide over 1,000 additional nights home from home accommodation for families with children in Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital.  Hannan Associates are very proud to have been part of the team who donated their services for the design and construction of these refurbishment works.

We are also Building Services Design consultants for the charity’s new 62 bedroom Ronald McDonald House in Oxford where Construction is due to start soon with a view to opening in summer 2020.

Historic Beyer & Peacock Site Refurb

Historic Beyer & Peacock Site Refurb

Hannan Associates are very pleased to be part of Morgan Sindall’s team involved in the refurbishment of Manchester City Council’s waste disposal and maintenance depot located at the Old Gorton Foundry site on Hammerstone Road in Gorton, Manchester.

The site spans a total area of 3.80ha, the west side of which is dominated by a 10,000 sq m industrial unit once occupied by railway manufacturers Beyer and Peacock who manufactured nearly 8,000 railway locomotives here from 1854 to 1966.

The unit is a single storey open plan building which will be remodelled and refurbished to provide a new multi-tenanted building with new office and maintenance facilities. The overall project also includes the rationalisation and amalgamation of services of other Manchester City Council depots at Ardwick and Newton Heath.

Our team, led by Colin Burns, David Green and Matthew Dalley, are providing Building Services Design, Building Physics Design and Sustainability Services for the transformation of this interesting building.

As part of the councils overall strategy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions from their portfolio, the development has been designed using dynamic simulation to embed a fabric first approach into the carbon reduction strategy.  As part of the environmental performance of the development, it has been decided to install rainwater/grey water harvesting. This system will as a minimum feed the vehicle wash system to minimise the use of carbon intensive potable water.

Photovoltaic panels have been incorporated into the design to minimise carbon emissions related to building processes and vehicle charging. To augment this strategy a battery storage solution has been proposed to store renewable energy generated by the PV during peak periods, thus maximising carbon reduction and minimising the technologies payback period.

We are very pleased to be working for Manchester City Council and Morgan Sindall on this interesting project. We join Fletcher Rae Architects and Curtins Consulting on the project design team.

In line with Manchester City Council’s social value targets, the project will use local suppliers and materials and once complete the facility will provide increased job opportunities to the local and surrounding areas.
