The refurbishment and replacement to all 8 floors, comprising of 47,000 sqft of office space, with a ground floor OurHaus fit-out to provide tenants with more facilities. Quartz acted as both Project Managers and Employer’s Agents for this prominently located commercial scheme in the center of Manchester. The office workspace was adapted to promote employee wellbeing. The roof terrace provides an outdoor communal space for tenants, which promotes health and fitness within an urban environment. It can also be used for informal meetings and social events which challenges the traditional way we work.
Quartz had an active role in achieving the Wellness Accreditation gold standard for this project. The WELL Building Standard is a vehicle for buildings and organisations to deliver more thoughtful and intentional spaces that enhance human health and well-being. This involved liaising with a number of consultants on subjects ranging from the procurement of appropriate mechanical and electrical equipment, to locating and commissioning local artists and even discussing beehives! Additionally, we lead the project to achieve a platinum rating for its cycle facilities, which was one of the first schemes to achieve this in Manchester.
