Co-operative group unveil new headquarters plans.

Co-operative Group unveils design for new head office

21/05/09

The Co-operative Group has today (21 May) unveiled the design for its new head office building in Manchester – a project which heralds a new era in its 150-year relationship with the city.

To be built on land on Miller Street, opposite the Co-operative Insurance tower, the new building will serve the UK’s largest mutual retailer which now has a turnover of over £13 billion.

Group Chief Executive Peter Marks said that the project would reflect the ethical values of the organisation in its design, construction and its relationship both with employees and surrounding communities.

Key features of the building will include:

* Design, construction and operation to the high standards set out in the Building Research Establishment’s Environmental Assessment Method (BREEAM), which will minimise its environmental impact.
* An outstanding design by leading architects 3D Reid, featuring a large central atrium, which will provide the city with an architectural landmark.
* Around 320,000 sq ft of open plan office space on 16 storeys, providing a modern working environment and facilities which will allow greater freedom for flexible working by staff.

Mr Marks explained: “The Co-operative Group was born and raised in Manchester. Our decision to build our new headquarters here is another clear sign of the renaissance of our business and our confidence in the future. Our new head office will not only enable us to continue our commercial contribution to city life but will also play a part in helping to make Manchester a 21st century leader in sustainable development.”

The new headquarters will represent the first phase in the redevelopment and regeneration of the Group’s 20-acre site, located at the city’s Northern Gateway and bounded by Miller Street and Corporation Street. The Group will be encouraging staff to make full use of the excellent public transport facilities close to the site and car parking provision will be reduced.

Mr Marks added: “We recognise the historic importance of our present premises and we occupy a number of buildings on the site. However, they do not provide the kind of working environment which we want for our business and our employees in the years ahead.

“The new building will be good for our business, good for our staff, good for the communities which surround it and good for Manchester.”

The Group is planning to submit a planning application to Manchester City Council in July. If planning permission is granted, work will start on the building at the beginning of next year with occupation scheduled for mid-2012.

Hello High Camera Ltd. Welcome to the forum and I look forward to seeing your images. As SteppenwWolf said. You may find this easier to do using Photo Bucket,
or one of the web image hosting sites, to get your URL. Copy and paste in a post and hey presto. You'll be an expert in no time. Good luck and don't keep us waiting for too long!

Development doubles as Manchester's revival gathers pace

In its 2011 Manchester Crane Survey, property consultant Drivers Jonas Deloitte has recorded a surge in new development activity since 2010 although new starts still remain well below the pre-recession peak of 32 in 2007. Four new schemes are underway around the city’s northern fringe including the redevelopment of the former Boddington’s Brewery Site as well as within the £800m NOMA regeneration area (pictured) – the emerging Co-op Quarter.

The Crane Survey records the lowest level of office delivery in its 13 year history in 2011 with vacancy rates in those buildings completed in the last 12 months standing at 25% leading to little speculative office development this year.

However, following the highest take-up levels in Manchester’s history in 2010 and a lack of new schemes coming forward in 2011, Drivers Jonas Deloitte says a future shortfall of Grade A office space in Manchester is a real possibility with some developers currently scoping opportunities behind the scenes. Confidence in Manchester’s office market has also been buoyed by a resurgent private sector – with professional services firms accounting for half of all lettings last year.

Drivers Jonas Deloitte says the figures demonstrate that the city is well positioned to shield itself from the Coalition Government’s austerity measures. The survey concludes on an optimistic note for Manchester’s future and highlights several significant regeneration masterplans in the pipeline

Co-op Headquarters Rise

Construction is currently underway on a new headquarters for what is one of the United Kingdom's best known businesses, the Co-operative Group.



To be located on Miller Street in Manchester, the company which recently took over supermarket chain Somerfield, has had its roots firmly planted in the city after being established there 100 years ago, providing everything from food to funeral services.

Currently with its divisions spread across several sites throughout the city the new headquarters which have been penned by architectural firm 3DReid will bring the company together under one roof.

Located on a former car park, the building which at its highest point will be 15 storeys, is located on the north-eastern corner of the site in order to minimise its impact on surrounding residential buildings. The project is the first phase of what is planned to be a new mixed-use destination point for the city.

Based on a traditional beehive shape the building consists of three wings arranged around a huge central atrium. In order to maximise light filtration for both the building itself and the surrounding existing buildings the design sees a sloping roof which At the north-east corner the building starts at ten storeys and rises to fifteen at the pinnacle on the north west corner of the site. On the south facing side stepped roof terraces open the building up to the rest of the city.

The facade is composed of two skins which to provide a buffer zonebetween internal and external spaces. The outer skin will be a glazed curtain wall featuring glazing bronze anodised aluminium perforated ventilation panels. The internal skin will be double-glazed with an exposed timber inner structure and a pre-cast concrete panel system.

When complete the project will provide 45,803 square metres of office space for 3500 employees already scattered in various building across the city, it will also include a café and restaurant for employees while it is planned a public piazza will be created on Miller Street.

The project will be the first of its kind in the UK to achieve a BREEAM Outstanding rating for its sustainability .The building will be carbon neutral through the use of low/zero carbon technologies and maximising the use of renewable energy sources for heating , cooling and lighting. A high efficiency biomass boiler will also be included which uses wood pellets as fuel as opposed to fossil fuels.

Once completed next year it will add to a growing collection of tall buildings as the conglomerate already has one of the tallest towers in Manchester nearby, the sixties CIS Tower.

New Record Student Tower Rises In Manc

Currently rising in Manchester is what will be the tallest student accommodation in the world when finished, marking yet another British holder of the record.



Hodder and Partners 106 metre tall tower at 17 New Wakefield Street will run to 33 floors above ground, and is being developed by Student Castle who are perhaps playing on the idea that a student's bedsit is his castle. In this case the project will have 522 student bedrooms arranged in cluster flats of 2-4 bedrooms, plus studio apartments for those who have enough money to need to share.

The scheme is situated off Great Marlborough Street near Oxford Road train station, a location that is reasonably central in Manchester without actually being prime. As well as being situated almost on top of a transport node, it is only about ten minutes walk from here to the trendy Deansgate area.

The current record holder is Nido in London which rises to 105 metres in height. This in turn beat Leeds' Sky Plaza which held the record for a mere year from 2009 to 2010. The tower, which is being built by Shepherd Construction, is rising at the rate of approximately one floor a week right now and will be topping out at around the end of 2011.

It's due to open in time for the new academic year beginning September 2012, and once completed will be the fourth tallest building in the city making a substantial dent on its skyline as well as spreading the main cluster of tall buildings a bit further to the south of Manchester city centre.
