Corporate HQ York Street Manchester
Conversion of a Grade II listed building to provide contemporary office space in the heart of the city. After extensive research, including partial uncovering, and negotiations with English Heritage we prepared a schedule of reinstatements that sought to restore many original features, including the central clerestory feature. This led to a successful planning application that allowed sensitive remodeling of the building to provide improved space use, upgrade of the environmental services and extension to the rear and at basement level. The exterior of the building also underwent extensive restoration.
