    Bordering the trendy neighbourhood of Manchester's Northern Quarter, Glassworks, Back Turner Street is a new development of three interlinked buildings, providing high-end office space in a convenient location on the door-step of the city centre. Starting in July 2021, the project was tasked with creating Grade A office space to meet the needs of modern working life.

    It was incredibly important to all the project partners that the materials used were carefully considered, paying particular attention to the original glass bottle factory, whose facade was retained to sit in between the new 18 storey glass-fronted tower and a new glass and brick-slip fronted building. Completed in December 2022, the new materials are sympathetic to the historic site and have contributed to it becoming a BREEAM excellent scheme.

    The Architectural Facades team were excited to assist with the design and supply of the brick slip cladding, aluminium back structure and aluminium panels.
