Construction Enquirer News 12-storey Salford office will boast a distinctive steel diagrid structure
English Cities Fund has submitted plans for the final major office project at the New Bailey scheme in Salford.
The decision to press ahead with the distinctive building to be known as Four New Bailey is a big boost to the Manchester commercial building market after the Covid-19 outbreak.
Designed by architect Make, with support from structural engineer Cundall and M&E engineer Hannan Associates, the building will rise to 12 storeys with a rooftop terrace.
The construction project is understood to be worth around £50m and will involve erecting a striking diagrid external structural steel frame encasing the façade.
Contractor Bowmer & Kirkland has built a strong relationship with English Cities Fund, a joint venture between Muse Developments, Legal & General and Homes England, at New Bailey.
It has been built two earlier office projects on the site and is completing the third due to complete in early 2021.
