Mann Island, Liverpool


Situated between the ‘Three Graces’ and Albert Dock, Mann Island is a RIBA award-winning mixed-use development which reconnects Liverpool’s city centre to its historic waterfront.

Hannan Associates were responsible for the detail design of the Building Services systems, for the new commercial building within the complex. The building provides 172,000 sq ft of comfort cooled office space over 14 floors. The block is part of a scheme that opens up access to previously enclosed dockland areas, to create three new publics spaces, two fourteen-storey residential buildings, retail, leisure, and exhibition spaces.

Our involvement included the base build Category A works to meet the Development brief and the Category B fit out to meet the requirements of Mersey Travel which includes an exhibition space on the ground floor.

The internal environment is controlled by a highly efficient VRF comfort cooling system, which incorporates renewable energy content. The design achieved BREEAM Excellent rating and won a 2015 RIBA North West Award.
