101 Barbirolli Square

Ardmac have recently completed the contract for a Cat A fit-out of the 85,000sq2, six storey, landmark building. Working alongside Project Managers, Savills and Architects, 5 Plus, work to transform the interior of 101 Barbirolli Square in Manchester city centre.

The project incorporated some structural elements involved in extending the entrance atrium, both in footprint and in height and introducing new curtain walling to the space.

The fit-out focuses on the use of high quality,simple finishes to create a very sophisticated, bespoke reception area. Careful consideration was given to the incumbent tenants, Price Waterhouse Cooper who are still inhabiting the building during the first phase.

Ardmac worked in an “invisible” way to them and their visitors by carrying out any noisy or disruptive works out of hours and maintaining a close working relationship with the Building Manager and PWC Representative to ensure they are not disrupted in any way by our works.

“On this challenging redevelopment project, it was mission critical that we could rely on a contractor that would pro-actively lead and deliver our challenging project to a superior standard. During tender process we were impressed with Ardmac’s professionalism and attention to detail throughout the whole process and preparation of the construction site and proposed works. We therefore selected them to run our exciting and challenging development project given they outperformed their peers and competitors. During the project and to date, we have been consistently impressed with the proactive nature of the Ardmac project team, quality of the construction and the delivery of the design team’s vision, to be critically on time and on budget.”
