The developers at 81 Fountain Street in Manchester’s central business district, contracted Ardmac to fully refurbish the listed seven-storey building into a vibrant and dynamic workspace.
We delivered a comprehensive programme of refurbishment works safely, on schedule, and within budget. The project included polished concrete floors to the main entrance, and a glass-fronted double-height entrance reception featuring a custom-made cast concrete and bronze reception desk, and distinctive ‘origami’ sculpture. The building features a new ‘bridge’ at first floor level, full access raised floors, and exposed ceiling soffits to all office areas. We also remodelled the basement car park, adding a cycle hub, complete with cycle racks, showers, a drying room, and lockers.
Following the success of the Cat A fit-out, in close co-operation with Castleforge Partners, and project managers Capita and Linesight, Kier Group appointed Ardmac to deliver the high spec Cat B fit-out within the building.
