Summary
Plot B7, Four New Bailey, is custom designed single tenanted building for BT to house its new Manchester Hub as part of their programme to consolidate existing regional office spaces.

A Make Architecture designed building, the façade and structure follow a unique and distinctive diagarid geometry.

Challenges
An extensive enabling works contract was undertaken to clear the site of archaeology and complete the required environmental remediation.

The façade is a unique diagrid solution with envelope elements wrapping the diagonal steel structure.

The enabling works and main contract negotiations were undertaken in the height of the Covid pandemic.

During the pandemic, and partway through the planning determination period, BT reduced its space requirement. It was necessary to quickly re-design the building to meet the new brief during the determination period.
