The latest phase of development at the award winning Stockport Exchange is now complete. 2 Stockport Exchange is a six-storey, 61,500 sq ft, Grade A office soon to be home to global chemical company BASF, who will take 21,500 sq ft of the office building as their UK headquarters.
Hannan Associates provided Building Services Engineering & BREEAM consultancy for this project, the third phase of development work at Stockport Exchange.
2 Stockport Exchange incorporates environmentally friendly design features such as a green roof system, secure cycle store, showers and lockers facilities to encourage people to cycle to work and low energy LED lighting throughout. Features include the use of natural daylight and enhanced building fabric performance to minimise the building’s carbon emissions, creating a reduction in its indirect impact on climate change. The building has been designed to achieve a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating and an EPC ‘A’ rating.
We are proud to be part of Muse Development’s team for this development and witness first hand the transformation of this area over the last ten years to a high quality commercial quarter incorporating attractive public realm, a hotel, retail, improved car parking and better connectivity between the station and the rest of the town centre.
With 2020 well under way, we reflect on some of the exciting schemes we will be working on this year…..

Rochdale’s new town centre retail and leisure quarter Rochdale Riverside is due to open on the 10th April 2020 and we think it’s looking brilliant! What a transformation!
When complete the complex will provide 24 retail and leisure units including a six screen Reel Cinema and a Hollywood Bowl Puttstars crazy golf course. The latest occupiers to join the scheme are restaurant chain Nando’s, luxury dessert chain Heavenly Desserts and health and beauty retailer Superdrug.
Our team are providing building services design consultancy for the base build, including Part L analysis for each of the buildings.
Hannan Associates are extremely proud to be part of the team delivering this project that will help transform Rochdale’s commercial landscape and give its residents a town centre they can be proud of.
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.
One of several projects undertaken as part of this masterplan is Rochdale Riverside, a new 200,000 sq ft retail and leisure quarter where occupiers will include Marks and Spencer, H&M, JD Sorts, River Island, Next, New Look and Boots. The retail complex will also feature a six-screen Reel Cinema. The project is progressing well on site and is due for completion Spring 2020.
Once complete it is hoped that Rochdale Riverside will contribute £17m a year to the local economy.
