The renovation programme of Manchester’s 435,000 sq ft Exchange Quay office development is continuing with the refurbishment of a building.

In excess of £200,000 is being invested in the reception revamp of Building 1.

The team at Exchange Quay have re-appointed architecture and design studio Jasper Sanders & Partners to develop the entrance, first floor mezzanine and lift lobbies at Building 1.

Till Asset Management, acting on behalf of Exchange Quay has revealed works have commenced on the entrance of the building with North West contractor Aztec. This forms part of the scheme’s continued commitment to enhancing its occupier experience with completion earmarked for Spring 2022.

The investment into upgrading the reception areas across multiple buildings totals £500,000.

It follows the successful transformation of the reception areas in both Buildings 8 & 5.

Jasper Sanders, design director, said: “This was all about retaining as many components as possible within the existing scheme, to refresh and update the arrival experience, using the minimal number of materials for maximum effect.”

Liam McCarthy, director at Till Asset Management, added: “Following the success and response to the scheme designs of both Buildings 8 & 5, we are pleased to be working with the leading design team again to progress our refurbishment programme to deliver another impressive entrance for occupiers and visitors alike.”
