3 Arena Central, Birmingham

PROJECT OVERVIEW

3 Arena Central is a 240,000 sq ft, grade A office building currently under construction at Arena Central, Birmingham’s first speculative office scheme since the recession.

The UK Government has committed to take the full 3 Arena Central building, which will sit at the heart of the nine acre mixed use regeneration site. The new Grade A, 14 floor office building will be home to 3,500 civil servants across a number of government services, including the Midlands regional hub for HM Revenue and Customs (HMRC).

Having already worked on the neighbouring 1 Centenary Square, Hannan Associates are providing MEP Performance Duties, Site Infrastructure Services & BREEAM Assessment for the scheme being delivered by ACDL, a joint venture led by Kier.

The MEP services installations are designed to meet the occupiers specific requirements, which will provide energy efficient installations, an excellent working environment and comfort conditions for the occupants and will contribute towards achieving a BREEAM Excellent rating for the building.

We played a key role in liaising with the occupier’s technical advisors in order to obtain their specific technical requirements and ensure successful delivery of the MEP services installations, which were agreed, costed and accommodated within the building design within a very short timescale.

We were very pleased to work alongside Make Architects, Gillespies Landscape Architects, Arcadis and WSP on the design team and main contractor Galliford Try.

The Arena Central masterplan will deliver 1.2 million sq ft of mixed-use development, alongside a unique public realm designed by Make Architects that features over 50 per cent soft landscaping at the heart of Birmingham city centre, designed to meet the city’s ever growing demand of office space and residential accommodation.

PROJECT OVERVIEW

1 Centenary Square, now home to HSBC is part of Arena Central, a £500 million mixed-use development scheme in Birmingham city centre being developed by Arena Central Developments LLP, a joint venture led by Kier.
Hannan Associates are proud to be providing Building Services Engineering consultancy for the development scheme.

The 210,000 sq ft, 10 storey, Grade A office building accommodates around 2,500 employees, with high quality flexible working and break out spaces.

We took the lead role in liaising with the occupiers’ technical advisors in order to obtain their specific technical requirements for the MEP services installations, which were agreed, costed and accommodated within the building design within a very short timescale.

This ensured successful delivery of the complex MEP services installations, which provide excellent internal environmental comfort conditions for the occupants and help achieve LEED Gold accreditation for the building, the first in the city.

The MEP services include full standby back-up generators, which also supports the heating, cooling and ventilation systems. This means that the MEP services within the building will continue to operate in the event of a full power outage of the incoming electrical supply to ensure business operations are unaffected and can continue as normal, which is a critical requirement of HSBC.

We worked alongside Make Architects, Gillespies Landscape Architects, Arcadis and WSP on the design team and main contractor Galliford Try.

The project won the ‘Commercial’ category at the RICS Awards 2019, West Midlands.

Riverside House, New Bailey Salford

Riverside House, New Bailey Salford

PROJECT OVERVIEW

Hannan Associates are very pleased to be part of the team involved in the redevelopment of Riverside House at New Bailey, Salford for our client The English Cities Fund.

Riverside House is a four storey, 11,000 sq ft office building, which includes the retention of two sides of the 19th Century facade from the pre-existing building, thought to date back to around the mid 1800’s when it was the Royal Veteran Tavern located behind the site of the Old Bailey Prison.

As part of our duties we provided MEP Perfomance Duties for the CAT A installations which expanded to include the CAT B fit out for Muse Developments who are taking 2 floors of the building.

We carried out thermal modelling and system optioneering to conclude the best scheme to meet the Client requirements.

The MEP services strategy was based on chilled beams providing comfort cooling, which helps limit the maintenance requirements within the space and offers the tenants high comfort levels, good space acoustics & low annual running costs. Detailed co-ordination of the exposed services achieved a more visually appealing, quality finish, which helps meet higher end market requirements. The design also included roof mounted photovoltaic arrays, which provides the building with a source of renewable energy.

The retention of the Victorian Gothic style facade gives the building a real sense of place and history and helps to create a gateway to New Bailey. Utilising the floor void for ventilation helped to maintain floor levels which suited the existing façade.

The project won ‘Fit Out of Workplace’ at the 2020 BCO Awards and ‘Design in Excellence’ at the 2020 Insider Property North West Awards.
