No.2 New Bailey, Salford
No. 2 New Bailey will be the third new office building at Salford Central’s New Bailey development. This 188,500 sq ft office building is the first scheme designed by architects Alford Hall Monaghan Morris in Greater Manchester.
The 11-storey building includes CAT A open plan office across 10 floors, commercial unit space at ground floor, basement car parking, external roof terrace and a public square and is on target to achieve a BREEAM Excellent rating along with a Wired Score rating of Platinum.
Each floor is designed to be sub-divided into separate tenancy areas with each area incorporating a private outdoor terrace. Simultaneous Variable Refrigerant Flow heating & cooling systems are provided to each tenant along with mechanical fresh air ventilation c/w heat recovery, which offers good flexibility and is easily adaptable to cope with sub-division and high occupant density.
The client’s design aspirations included exposed services and so for aesthetic and acoustic reasons ceiling rafts were added to help conceal the indoor VRF units.
The building is in line to meet Part L2 Building Regulations and achieve an A rated EPC.
Eversheds Sutherland are taking approximately 50,000 sq ft across the part 8th, 9th and 10th floors.
The project is being backed by the English Cities Fund (tECF) – a joint venture between Muse Developments, Legal and General and Homes England.
