Summary
The second phase of a £90M development in Manchester city centre, comprising a further 200,00sqft GIFA of Grade A BREEAM Excellent rated office space. The buildings are supported on a podium deck above a 442 space car park, occupied by QPark.

 

Challenges
Phase Two presented a unique challenge, as the 1.3m deep transfer slab to support the building was constructed above the upper deck of the car park at podium level, whilst the carpark remained operational.

The constrained site introduced complexities with construction logistics which were overcome with close liaison with Network Rail, Salford City Council and the existing tenants for the car park and Building 101.

During construction, the tower crane was supported from the transfer slab and with a close Network Rail interface the necessary detailed design checks were undertaken.
