Valette Square, Salford

PROJECT OVERVIEW

We are currently providing MEP Performance Duties for a new build development of townhouses known as Valette Square, located at Adelphi Street in Salford.

Named after French Impressionist painter Pierre Adolphe Valette known for his acclaimed paintings of Manchester and Salford. He was a teacher at the Manchester Municipal School of Art and is remembered as L. S. Lowry’s tutor.

The development compromises of 33 townhouses with a mix of 2, 3 and 4 bedroom properties with private gardens and terraces as well as a 52 space car park is also being developed as part of The Royal Hospital building.

Our duties include early stage MEP concept design, utility connections & diversions advice, initial Part L1A calculations, renewable energy technologies feasibility review and site inspection duties.

The townhouse’s features include smart utility metering, waste recycling facilities and improved insulation to minimize heat loss and reduce utility bills.

Valette Square is the fourth Chapel Street residential development by The English Cities Fund as part of the wider Salford Central regeneration scheme. We are very proud to have been a part of the design team for all four of the schemes, including the multiple award-winning Timekeepers Square.

Other members of the team include Buttress Architects, Integra Consulting, Appleyard and Trew and main contractor John Turner Construction Group.

The project is due for completion in December 2020.

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.

PROJECT OVERVIEW

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.

Talbot Gateway Car Park Scheme, Blackpool

PROJECT OVERVIEW

As part of Muse Development’s 1.1 million sq ft Talbot Gateway Development in Blackpool we provided MEP design services for the refurbishment of the 648 space, 5 level multi-storey car park originally built in the 1930s. The car park also incorporates ground floor retail units, in keeping with the design of the rest of the development. 

The car park was a warded the British Parking Award for ‘Best Refurbishment’ during 2014. The Talbot Road MSCP beat strong competition from five other shortlisted car parks in the Best Refurbishment category thanks to a creative design that reveals the original 1930s frame through the new elevations, to deliver a contemporary car park that acknowledges its heritage. 

The car park now forms a central part of this mixed-use scheme, which also includes a 120,000 sq ft Sainsbury’s store, a 126,000 sq ft, energy-efficient office development ‘Number 1 Bickerstaffe Square’ with ground floor retail and gym and extensive new public spaces.
