Following many months of hard work by the whole project team, we’re happy to announce that the main refurbishment of Heron House has reached practical completion. The 5plus designed scheme has seen the transformation of a dated office into a high quality workplace befitting the buildings location in the heart of Manchester’s Civic Quarter.
The project has involved the full refurbishment of the office floors and common areas along with the remodelling of the main reception and part of the building envelope. Externally new windows and façade upgrades have transformed the buildings outdated appearance. Other work has included upgrading the Lloyd Street entrance, lift lobbies and electrical and mechanical services. All building services have been replaced, with a mixed-mode ventilation strategy adopted.
The floor plate strategy allows for single or multiple occupiers, ensuring maximum flexibility for each floor level. A number of tenants have already been secured for the building.
With Heron House located at the gateway to the wider Lincoln Square Masterplan, it is hoped the completed building will help revitalise and reinvigorate this important area between the Town Hall and Spinningfields in central Manchester.
The project has been undertaken on behalf of Manchester City Council and Development Managers Bruntwood and was delivered by Contractor Kier.
In May 2019, Heron House was shortlisted for two awards at the North West Regional Construction Awards with the results to be announced on Friday 12th July.
