We are very pleased to be a part of the team delivering the next phase of redevelopment at Emirates Old Trafford cricket ground for Lancashire County Cricket Club.

Proposed plans for the redevelopment of the Red Rose Grandstand include an 86 bedroom, 9 suite hotel extension, which will occupy the upper four floors above a new 1000 seat stand. The lower two floors will include retail space, a ticket office, museum facilities as well as a members lounge. External works include the realignment of Brian Statham Way with the adjacent public realm areas, which forms part of Trafford Council’s Civic Quarter masterplan .

 Plans have been approved by Trafford Council and construction is scheduled to start early next year.

Meet the Team Q&A: John Walker

Meet the Team Q&A: John Walker

Name: John Walker

Role: Director & Electrical Design Engineer

How did you become a building services engineer? 

I was interested in architecture, interiors, physics, engineering and Sound. I didn’t think I had the artistic ability for architecture and because I really enjoyed problem solving I chose engineering. I almost got a job as a sound engineer with the BBC which would have taken my life on a really different path. I started as a trainee electrical building services engineer after leaving school and studied part time eventually getting my degree with the open university.

What’s your favourite thing about your job?

The variety in construction keeps you interested. Every project is different and the environment keeps changing. Low carbon buildings have made our role more interesting. Buildings have also become much more technically advanced over the years. One of my other early ambitions was to have my own business and I have achieved that at Hannan Associates. I like being in medium size company because everyone has a real influence rather than being part of a large corporate machine.

Out of all the projects you’ve been involved with have you got a favourite and why?

I don’t really have any favourite projects it’s more about enjoying working in good teams. I have been fortunate to work in situations where the same team has worked together on projects spanning a number of years. The trust and understanding you build with everyone makes the challenges more enjoyable.

How has the industry changed since you first started your career?

When I first started in the industry we were drawing with pens, producing document on typewriters and communicating with the design team using letters in the post. Response times were around 1-2 weeks to get a reply to your letter. The photocopier took up an entire room in the basement and there was no internet, email or mobile phones. MS windows didn’t exist so when you switched on a computer it was just blank screen. I used write software programs for some the calculations we were doing for lighting.

What do you like to do when you’re not working?

Getting together with friends and family and having a laugh. Food – at home and in restaurants. Outdoor activities – walking, cycling, skiing, open water swimming. Travel – exploring the world and other cultures. Music, Cinema and Art.

If you weren’t an engineer, what would you be?

Working in a cool little bar on a beach somewhere

DfP Framework Officially Launched

DfP Framework Officially Launched

New office developments and refurbishment projects in the UK will now be able to officially register their schemes under the Design for Performance framework.

The Design for Performance initiative was devised by The Better Buildings Partnership alongside the highly successful Australian NABERS programme to help close the well-known ‘energy performance gap.’ The framework provides the UK with an approach to office building design based on measurable performance outcomes rather than solely using design based criteria to assess a building’s impact.  

Once a project signs a Design for Performance Agreement and sets a target NABERS Energy rating they can then promote their target rating to investors and occupiers, demonstrating the project’s commitment to sustainability and net zero carbon targets. The project is then required to be designed to meet the proposed energy rating targets using advanced simulation modelling.

 

The launch of NABERS UK and DFP comes at a critical time, as the built environment comes under increasing pressure to meet net zero carbon targets.

As part of our role as Building Services Engineers we have been increasingly helping clients design office buildings which will target a NABERS UK Energy Rating & UK Green Building Council (UKGBC) Net Zero Carbon targets by undertaking Design for Performance standard advanced simulation modelling during the design process.

We are very proud to be working as part of Legal & General Investment Management’s team for the design of the Ralli Quays office and hotel scheme in Salford. This project is one of the 14 office developments in the UK which have been pioneering the Design for Performance initiative.
