Hannan Associates are very pleased to be providing Building Services Design for Blackburn town centre’s major new office development within the Cathedral Quarter regeneration project.
Maple Grove Developments and architects BDP have secured planning permission for the second commercial building at Cathedral Square comprising 30,000 sq ft nett Grade A office space and ground floor level retail space.
This project follows on from the successful development of One Cathedral Square, the 35,000 sq ft office building now owned by L&G Property which has been fully let to Blackburn with Darwen Council. Maple Grove, who are part of the Eric Wright Group, are Blackburn and Darwen Council’s chosen development partner for the Cathedral Quarter regeneration scheme.
Offices, in all forms, have been at the core of our business for over 30 years. Whether it be speculative offices designed to meet basic needs and functions or highly customized office space designed to meet the requirements of a particular end user. Often these buildings provide us with the opportunity to create innovative and sustainable designs that contribute towards the wider regeneration of our towns and cities.
Our engineers understand what our clients and tenants expect and need from the 21st Century workplace – a building which is more environmentally sustainable, flexible and space & cost efficient.

Construction for Conwy County Borough Council’s new 100,000 sq ft offices in Colwyn Bay is now complete!
Hannan Associate’s team was led by Andrew Carrington, Colin Burns, Shaun Wilkinson, Rebecca Dagnall and Matthew Dalley. Our duties included Utilities & Building Services Design Consultancy; Sustainability Services; Building Physics and BREEAM Assessment for this new build office accommodation developed by Conwy Council and Muse Developments.
Conwy County Borough Council’s New Offices Central Atrium
The BREEAM ‘Excellent,’ ‘A’ rated Energy Performance Certificate building has been designed to include passive design measures that will reduce carbon emissions and energy consumption including enhanced insulation to the building envelope and engineered facade design.
The glazed proportion of the building façade and the central atrium maximizes natural daylight to offset the demand for lighting whilst at the same time high performance glazing minimizes thermal losses. To further reduce carbon emissions and energy consumption, the building’s heating and cooling is produced via air source heat pumps, highly efficient LED lighting and roof mounted photovoltaic arrays.
The four storey, 100,000 sq ft office building, said to be the largest development of it’s type in North Wales, will now be home to approximately 780 Conwy County Borough Council’s workers. It has enabled the council to operate more efficiently and improve services for customers by consolidating staff and services into fewer sites.
The building was design by AHR Architects and built by Bowmer and Kirkland construction.

We are advising our clients and contacts to review current and potential projects and where possible register these now before the BREEAM 2014 scheme closes. It is our experience that previous updates have resulted in more stringent requirements across the board. The uplifted cost associated with minimising energy and water consumption, reducing site waste and improving the ecological value of a development can be significant.
