PROJECT OVERVIEW

Plans for this new 215,000 sq ft, £100m office development will form part of the third phase of the Talbot Gateway regeneration scheme in Blackpool, led by Muse Developments.

When complete the seven storey office building will become home to over 3000 staff from the Department of Work and Pensions.

Hannan Associates are providing Building Services Engineering Consultancy including Net Zero Carbon operational energy modelling and BREEAM assessor duties for the development.

The building has been designed to be ultra-low energy. Low-carbon heating and cooling to the office will be provided via air source heat pumps. Demand-driven ventilation will also be provided, helping improve indoor air quality while saving energy during periods of reduced occupancy.

The building has been designed to achieve a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating.

We are working alongside Make Architects, RPS, Chroma, Arup on Muse Development’s design team.

The Talbot Gateway regeneration is transforming Blackpool town centre and will comprise of a new business district and civic quarter, grade A offices, retail space, event space and a new public transport interchange.

Wirral Regeneration

PROJECT OVERVIEW

Hannan Associates are part of the team chosen for the redevelopment of the Wirral. Our client Muse Developments were selected in March 2018 to partner with Wirral Borough Council for this exciting 10-15 year regeneration scheme – creating a 50/50 joint venture called Wirral Growth Company. Our role on the project includes Sustainability, BREEAM, Infrastructure and MEP design. This large scale mixed development scheme will cover 32 sites in Moreton, Wallasey, Bebington, Bromborough and Birkenhead and will include office spaces, leisure facilities, residential, extra care accommodation, retail and public realm. The first phase of work would involve the development of two grade A offices alongside retail, leisure and new public realm in Birkenhead town centre, for which plans have now been lodged. We join AHR Architects, Curtins Consulting, Abacus, Gillespies and Vectos on the design team.

Ralli Quays, Salford

Ralli Quays, Salford

Ralli Quays, Salford

PROJECT OVERVIEW

Hannan Associates are part of Legal & General Investment Management’s team for the design of the Ralli Quays office and hotel scheme on the River Irwell in Salford.  

The client is targeting net zero carbon via a combination of the UKGBC 2030 targets and carbon offset for both construction and operation, including a high NABERS Star Energy Rating.

The building is also targeting BREEAM excellent and EPC A.

Our role on the project includes Sustainability Services, BREEAM and MEP Design.

Ralli Quays is one of only fourteen developments in the UK pioneering the Better Buildings Partnership Design for Performance initiative.  The key objective of the Pilot Programme was to provide a strong evidence base for proceeding to a fully-fledged DfP Scheme.

As part of our package we are utilising complex thermal modelling software to accurately simulate HVAC plant and control networks for each building in order to ascertain the predicted in use operational energy consumptions for a variety of on-axis and off-axis scenarios. This is vital in providing a building-integrated approach where the HVAC systems and building are assessed as a whole all gains/losses, heat transfer and thermal mass in the building to be accounted for alongside system performance.

This allows us to address the performance gap that has been created by the out of date methodology to design buildings for compliance, as we can accurately assess the results of simulations and check against the latest Energy Performance Targets based on the Australian NABERS approach.

We are very pleased to join EPR Architects, DPP One, Turner & Townsend, Walker Sime, Clancy Consulting, Colliers on the project design team.

PROJECT OVERVIEW

Four New Bailey will be a 10-storey Grade A Office building providing 175,000 sqft office space and will be the new regional hub for telecommunications giant British Telecom (BT), who have signed a 20-year lease on the entire building.

The building currently under construction by Bowmer & Kirkland, features a distinctive metal diagrid lattice structure, which references the industrial and Victorian engineering heritage of the area, inclusive of the numerous bridges locally which span the River Irwell.

We have been appointed as MEP design consultants on the project and we are pleased to be working alongside Make Architects, Cundall, Chroma Consulting, Reform Landscape Architects and main contractor B&K.

The building has been designed in line with BCO guidance and is set to achieve both a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ and Wired Score ‘Platinum’ rating. Key to the project’s sustainability ambitions was an all-electric energy strategy.

As part of our appointment, we have undertaken BREEAM duties and developed the Part L model, inclusive of undertaking passive design analysis. We have worked in conjunction with the design team and tenant to ensure maximum flexibility for MEP services installations on the open plan office floor, while making sufficient provision within dedicated plant and distribution zones for tenant installed plant as part of the fit-out works.

The New Bailey development sits on the River Irwell in Salford and forms part of the English Cities Fund’s £1bn regeneration of Salford Central.

The English Cities Fund is a joint venture between Muse Developments, Legal & General and Homes England.

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 provided Building Services Engineering, Site Infrastructure Services & BREEAM Assessment for the scheme delivered by ACDL, a joint venture led by Kier.

The MEP services installations were designed to meet the occupiers specific requirements, which provide energy efficient installations, an excellent working environment and comfort conditions for the occupants contributing towards 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.
