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 are providing MEP Performance Duties, Site Infrastructure Services & BREEAM Assessment for the scheme being delivered by ACDL, a joint venture led by Kier.

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

Peaks and Plains HQ, Macclesfield

Peaks & Plains HQ, Macclesfield

PROJECT OVERVIEW

In the wake of their 10 year anniversary, the head office of Peaks and Plains Housing Trust underwent a transformational fit out programme.

The award wining project, designed by BAND Architects, involved the refurbishment of  the trust’s Ropewalks building to reflect the changing needs of their business.

The new layout of the offices reflects the vibrant communities that Peaks & Plains work with across Cheshire, by creating a homely feel whilst bringing together its core operations into a single working environment.

Hannan Associates were appointed as MEP Design consultants on the project alongside BAND Architects, Abacus Cost Management, Brown and Bancroft Interiors, JMC Contractors and Kinnarps Workspace Solutions.

We provided the outline design of the MEP Services and carried out a technical checking role for the client, reviewing both the detailed design of the Contractor and also the site installation works.

Our team ensured that our client’s interests were protected and their objectives realised by ensuring that the full operational requirements & functionality of the office was understood at an early stage and all elements were included within the tender package submitted. Our team remained open minded  and focussed on helping to create a better office environment for the trust’s staff.

We subsequently worked with the contractors to oversee any value engineering proposals to ensure that the project was delivered to budget but at the same time only high quality alternatives were accepted to complete the project in line with the overall vision the client was hoping to achieve.
