Next Phase of Rochdale Town Centre Approved

Next Phase of Rochdale Town Centre Approved

The next phase of regeneration plans for Rochdale town centre have been approved by Rochdale Council.

The proposed plans for the mixed-use scheme being delivered by Genr8 Developments and Kajima in partnership with Rochdale Borough Council and Rochdale Development Agency, feature two blocks of apartments for private rent, a Hampton by Hilton hotel and a 44,000 sq ft office. The scheme will be constructed next to Rochdale Riverside retail and leisure development, which opened in 2020.

Hannan Associates are very pleased to be part of Gener8’s team for the ongoing regeneration of Rochdale Town Centre providing Building Services Engineering, BREEAM and Infrastructure consultancy.

Other members of the team include Cartwright Pickard, KKA Architecture, AEW Architects, Planit IE, Arcadis, Curtins Consulting and the main contractor is Willmott Dixon.

Once a thriving boom town of the industrial revolution and birthplace of the co-operative movement, Rochdale’s history, architecture and geographic location make it an important Greater Manchester town. However, following the decline of its cotton mills and manufacturing industry the town suffered economic downturn and neglect.

In a bid to turn the fortunes of this town around, Rochdale Borough Council have been actively working to improve the town centre for shoppers, visitors and businesses with a £250 million regeneration programme.

Hannan Associates have over 35 years’ experience of urban regeneration projects, working with clients and design teams to develop strategic Building Services Engineering, Infrastructure and Sustainability solutions that help transform previously neglected areas of our towns and cities.

Valette Square Homes Now Complete

Valette Square Homes Now Complete

Hannan Associates are very proud to have been a part of the team to design and deliver Salford Central’s latest residential property development, Valette Square.

The recently completed Valette Square was delivered by The English Cities Fund – a joint venture between Homes England, Legal & General and Muse Developments. 

The development includes 33 townhouses with a mix of 2, 3 and 4 bedrooms with private gardens and terraces. It is situated just off Chapel Street, a short walk to Manchester City Centre, Spinningfields, New Bailey, Peel Park and the River Irwell.

The development is 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. 

Hannan Associates provided Building Services Engineering consultancy for the new homes, including early stage MEP concept design, utility connections & diversions advice, initial Part L1A calculations, renewable energy technologies feasibility review and site inspection duties. 

The design of the townhouses’ façade and orientation optimises natural daylighting and reduces the requirement of artificial lighting. Other design features include smart utility metering, occupant controlled zoned heating system, low energy light fittings, improved insulation to minimize heat loss & reduce utility bills and Integrated Virgin Media and BT telecoms infrastructure. 

Other members of the team included Buttress Architects, Integra Consulting, Chroma and main contractor John Turner Construction Group.  

This is the fourth phase of residential development in the Chapel Street area by the English Cities Fund, which forms part of the wider Salford Central masterplan.  Other schemes include Vimto Gardens, Timekeepers Square and Carpino Place . 

Hannan Associates are very proud to have supported clients with the delivery of residential accommodation to the value of around £400M in recent years. Playing a key role in developments for the For Sale, Private Rental, High End, Social and Retirement markets.

Two New Bailey Square Office Complete

The recently completed Two New Bailey Square will be the second new office building at Salford Central’s New Bailey development. This 188,500 sq ft office building is the first scheme designed by architects Alford Hall Monaghan Morris in Greater Manchester.

The 11-storey building includes CAT A open plan office across 10 floors, commercial unit space at ground floor, basement car parking, external roof terrace and a public square and is on target to achieve an A rated Energy Performance Certificate, a BREEAM Excellent rating along with a Wired Score rating of Platinum.

Hannan Associates provided Building Services Engineering Consultancy and BREEAM Assessment for the development. 

Each floor is designed to be sub-divided into two separate tenancies, each area provided with a private external balcony. Simultaneous Variable Refrigerant Flow heating & cooling systems are provided to each tenancy, mechanical fresh air ventilation from roof mounted air handling plant incorporating heat recovery, which offers good flexibility and is easily adaptable to cope with sub-division and high occupant density. 

The client’s design aspirations included exposed services with acoustic rafts to conceal the indoor VRF units and improve the acoustics of the open plan office space. 

Eversheds Sutherland are taking approximately 50,000 sq ft across the part 8th, 9th and 10th floors with BLM LLP signed to occupy first to fourth floors . 

We are proud to be part of the English Cities Fund (tECF) team– a joint venture between Muse Developments, Legal and General and Homes England.

Hello, from our homes to yours!

Hello, from our homes to yours!

How is everyone doing six weeks into lock-down?

Team Hannan have settled into working from home and everyone is doing a brilliant job of maintaining ‘business as usual.’ With a little help from the miracle of modern technology we remain apart yet connected. 

We are increasingly thankful to all the key workers, selflessly risking their safety to continue to provide essential services for us during this time and we feel very proud of how UK communities & businesses have come together to support each other and help fight the Covid-19 pandemic.

We are thankful for our strong client base and the interesting projects that are keeping us busy and we are each making the most of the additional free time we do have to reflect and take stock; learn new skills & hobbies; exercise; bake; read and catch up with friends and family.

Although maintaining a positive outlook towards the unknown territory that still faces us, we very much look forward to things gradually returning to something even vaguely resembling the ‘old normal’ and seeing people in the flesh again soon!

We think that it’s important to maintain contact with one another now more than ever, so if you fancy a virtual coffee and catch up or perhaps have a query about a project please get in touch…….

Stay safe everyone!
