John Sisk & Son was engaged to deliver the €23.5m Chancery Place new build scheme within a conservation area in the heart of Manchester’s business district. The striking results comprise a mix of retail and high quality office space over 15 floors along with two and a half levels of basement car parking.
Early engagement with client Chancery Place Developments during the design and planning process resulted in a building which occupies 105% of its footprint, increasing lettable space and revenue.
Vertical glass louvres screen the rooftop plant and visually ‘crown’ the building, while internally, the open plan commercial space is finished to a very high specification with amenity areas faced with natural stone and slate materials.
Adaptability is fundamental to the building’s design, allowing for flexible configurations on each floor to meet diverse and evolving tenant needs. Chancery Place’s sustainable agenda is demonstrated through its BREEAM Very Good rating.
