The environment is a topic frequently in the news in recent weeks, with the horrendous storms that have battered the south coast of Britain, the floods in Somerset and endless rain everywhere else in the country. This got the team at Canning O’Neill thinking about our own carbon footprint and the practical things we can do to help to minimise our own carbon path. From recycling to pledging ’30 days vegan’, we’re trying to do our best for nature and the environment.
One of the buildings we are marketing in Salford Quays, Metro, is one of only 2 buildings within Greater Manchester (outside the city centre) to have been awarded an “EXCELLENT” BREEAM Rating , recognising the fact that it is extremely environmentally friendly and energy efficient in its’ construction and design.
This brand new, top specification office development provides a total of 72,557 sq ft together with 227 on-site car parking spaces (1:313 sq ft). The building has large, un-interrupted floor-plates of just under 18,000 sq ft.
Occupying one of the most high profile positions in Salford Quays, Metro offers fantastic Grade A offices close to all the retail, leisure and public transport amenities and within easy walking distance of MediaCityUK.
Level 4 has recently been let to SKM Consulting and Level 5 is let to Insight. This leaves Level 2 (17,785 sq ft) and Level 3 (17,716 sq ft) available as single floors or 35,501 sq ft combined.
The Exchange Quay Metrolink station immediately adjoins the building (with a journey time of c. 10 minutes to Manchester City Centre) and Junction 3 of the M602 motorway is only 3 minutes by car.
The building has been designed and constructed to the highest possible standards, with full access raised floors, air conditioning, suspended ceilings and recessed LG7 lighting with motion sensors. The building has an impressive full height, manned reception and a secure car park (over 2 level), providing parking for 227 cars (1:313 sq ft), plus dedicated motorbike and cycle parking and shower/changing/locker facilities.
