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.
