Case Study

St Peter’s Square

Project Overview

Providing 268,00 sq ft of office space in the heart of Manchester’s central business district, the building has been designed to meet the extremely extracting demands of a BREEAM Excellent’, Grade A’ compliance.

Following on from RED’s previous successful schemes with Russells Construction (now known as Russell WBHO following a merger in 2018), RED were engaged to provide a solution for this city centre hotel development.

There were 3 main challenges to overcome during the tender stage,

  1. high acoustic values to be achieved;
  2. development of a bespoke vertical brise soleil feature;
  3. all windows to be installed at an off-site Pre-Cast Concrete facility.
Design Details

The development comprises of 2 hotels stacked on top of each other – Motel One and Stay City. The city centre plot was on a postage stamp and site access was particularly difficult, hence why it lent itself to an off-site modern method of construction.

Design detailing was quite challenging due to the way the PCC panels are vertically stacked.

However, the RED Pre-Construction team were given the opportunity to get involved in the scheme at very early stages and develop a robust detail and bespoke PCC bracketry in conjunction with the project team at Russell WBHO.
