PROJECT OVERVIEW

Hannan Associates are very pleased to be part of Morgan Sindall’s team involved in the refurbishment of Manchester City Council’s waste disposal and maintenance depot located at the old Gorton Foundry site on Hammerstone Road in Gorton, Manchester.

The site spans a total area of 3.80ha and the west side is dominated by a 10,000 sq m industrial unit, which was once occupied by railway manufacturers Beyer and Peacock who manufactured nearly 8,000 railway locomotives here from 1854 to 1966.

The unit is a single storey open plan building which will be remodelled and refurbished to provide a new multi-tenanted building with new office and maintenance facilities. The overall project also includes the rationalisation and amalgamation of services of other Manchester City Council depots at Ardwick and Newton Heath.

Our team are very pleased to be providing Building Services Design, Building Physics Design and Sustainability Services for the transformation of this interesting building.

Photovoltaic panels have been incorporated into the design to minimise carbon emissions related to building processes and vehicle charging. To augment this strategy a battery storage solution has been proposed to store renewable energy generated by the PV during peak periods, thus maximising carbon reduction and minimising the technologies payback period.

As part of the councils overall strategy to reduce greenhouse gas emission from their portfolio, the development has been designed using dynamic simulation to embed a fabric first approach into the carbon reduction strategy.  As part of the environmental performance of the development, it has been decided to install rainwater/grey water harvesting. This system will as a minimum feed the vehicle wash system to minimise the use of carbon intensive potable water .

Energy monitoring through the use of smart meters has become commonplace in the home to enable residents to minimise energy usage.  BEMS enables the building users and FM team monitor, benchmark and target energy consumption thus reducing the buildings carbon emissions on a system by system basis as well as a tenancy basis.

We are very pleased to be working for Manchester City Council and Morgan Sindall on this interesting project. We join Fletcher Rae Architects and Curtins Consulting on the project design team.

Galaxy Distribution Centre, Matalan, Knowsley

PROJECT OVERVIEW

The Galaxy Distribution Centre was originally commissioned circa 2010 as a speculative industrial unit of 550,000 sq ft, with the facility to extend in the future.

In 2013 as part of a major redevelopment of the site and adjacent land, the building was extended to provide a new ‘Major Logistics’ facility for fashion retailer Matalan, with the adjacent site becoming the new home for their corporate headquarters.

The original building was extended to provide an additional 150,000sq ft of storage space, as well as Transport Offices, servicing, a new Gatehouse, and ‘off site’ highways infra-structure works.

An extended Amenity Building was created to incorporate offices, training suites, canteen and changing rooms.

The warehouse included a new automated single picking system and storage facility. Hannan Associates were engaged to design the extensions and alterations to accommodate the specialist fitting out of the new warehouse facility and to alter and adjust the infrastructure of the building to accommodate the fitting out.

Amazon, Logic Leeds Business Park

PROJECT OVERVIEW

We provided utilities infrastructure master planning and procurement for the overall development proposals and design and monitoring services for the MEP associated with the initial speculative 80,000 ft² industrial unit. As part of the team we contributed to the specification of the unit which was developed to provide a wide tenant appeal and a high level of flexibility to attract potential tenants.

The unit is now let to Amazon and we assisted the client during the letting of the unit and carried out the design and monitoring of additional car parking facilities requesting by Amazon.

Logic Leeds is part of the Leeds Enterprise Zone, which means that it benefits from a range of incentives for occupiers. Overall there is outline planning for 1.6 million ft² of quality industrial, storage and distribution development. All buildings will have a high BREEAM rating and state-of-the-art facilities.
