Project description

An award-winning £100 million low-energy, highly sustainable new headquarters for the Co-operative Group in Manchester city centre. Twelve distinct Co-operative businesses are accommodated within the new headquarters building, a step change in efficiency compared with the starting situation, which had the Co-operative’s premises spread across 8 separate buildings and a total of 65 floors.

Innovations & added value

At 500,000 ft2 this is the largest commercial office building in Manchester, and with a BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ rating, scoring 95.16%, sets a new national benchmark in sustainable design within the commercial sector. We designed the project using the latest BIM software and techniques.
