A flagship development in Manchester City Council’s strategic plan, Circle Square is recognised as a catalyst for regeneration unlocking the potential for investment through the provision of next generation workspace, with two towers at 18 and 14 storeys tall providing 400,000ft2 BREEAM “excellent” Grade A office space.
As part of the two-stage procurement process, Sisk worked collaboratively with our client Bruntwood, their design team and our supply chain partners to ensure a robust delivery programme was developed and cost certainty would be achieved.
Through the use of Digital Project Delivery tools such as Viewpoint (Fieldview), a reactive system was used for snagging and reporting on completed works. We were able to readdress repetitive snags and correct them before this impacted programme or quality of the onsite works. Bruntwood were so impressed by the quality of the office shell, they extended our work to include fit out works to a number of floors for incoming tenants.
Sisk partnered with local social enterprise, Mancunian Way throughout the works to provide office space for the charity saving them £15,000 per year. Sisk also put 75 vulnerable people through CSCS training, with 15 now employed by Sisk.
