Rochdale Borough Council have approved plans for a new £70 million, shopping and leisure development that will drastically change its town centre. The project is being delivered jointly by Genr8 Developments and Kajima, in partnership with the council.
Reel Cinema, Next and M&S have already signed up for the scheme, with phase one set to deliver around 24 shops, restaurants and leisure facilities, across an excess of 200,000 square feet.
Our duties include MEP design consultancy services for the base build shell and core elements and landlords areas, Including thermal modelling and Part L analysis for each of the buildings. Hannan Associates have worked closely with other members of the design team to develop innovative, landmark buildings, with effective and efficient building services solutions to meet the needs for each particular building.
Due to the nature of the development and location of the site, our role has also involved extensive dialogue and negotiations with all utility providers in the area, to deal with the extensive major utility diversions that will be necessary on and around the site, as well as dealing with the new supply connection requirements.
Rochdale Riverside is the latest edition to our list of town and city centre regeneration schemes that include Salford, Chester, Stoke, Wakefield, Blackpool, Dorchester, Doncaster and Stockport.
