Holiday Inn Hotel, Stockport Exchange
We are pleased to be part of Muse Development’s team, selected as Stockport’s development partner. Stockport Council bought the site in order to create a gateway from the train station to the town centre. The development includes a high quality office quarter, an attractive public realm area, a hotel, retail units, ease of access to the town centre, and improved car parking for the station.
For Phase 1 of the development we were involved in the design of a new 1,000 space multi-storey car park.
For Phase 2, which is now complete, we were involved in the design and construction of a 50,000 sq ft office block, 115 bedroom Holiday Inn Express Hotel, new pedestrianised public space outside the train station, and a new reconfigured road layout to improve station access. The aim being to create a new gateway to Stockport town centre.
Our analysis included the consideration of connecting the development to Stockport’s proposed heat network. The buildings will achieve BREEAM Excellent. The scheme won ‘Public/Private Partnership of the Year’ at the Insider North West Property Awards, and is a finalist for the Manchester Chamber of Commerce ‘Building of the Year’ Award.
