Working on behalf of main contractor Marshall Construction, Caunton Engineering has been awarded the contract for the structural steelwork for the redevelopment of Brazennose House.
The company will be supplying over 1,200t of steelwork for the new 9,400m², six-storey Grade A office building, which is set to be the centrepiece of the regenerated Square, while also providing a link between Manchester Town Hall and Deansgate.
The structure will have a roof terrace and retail/restaurant units on the ground floor. The main steelwork is engineered by the Manchester office of Ramboll UK and the connections designed by the Caunton technical team.
The Peace Gardens will feature tree planting and seating as well as floor lighting and a memorial plaque to Princess Diana.
The project is due for completion early 2021.
