Manchester flagship development expands with steel

Posted on by in News

Working on behalf of main contractor GMI, Billington Structures is fabricating, supplying and erecting the steel frame for 3 Circle Square in Manchester city centre.

The latest building in a much wider scheme, 3 Circle Square will have 15-storeys and feature cutting-edge workspace designed to facilitate collaboration and innovation.

The completed building will pay tribute to Manchester’s Victorian and Edwardian architecture. Featuring a high-quality red brick design by Bridge Architects, the new development will include ground floor retail and leisure space, as well as a communal lounge, event space and a roof terrace.

Sustainability and green space have also been carefully considered in the design of 3 Circle Square, with the development expected to achieve net zero embodied carbon during construction and BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating, a NABERS 5 Star rating and an EPC A rating once operational.

The building will benefit from an all-electric heating and cooling system with state-of-the-art air source heat pumps, as well as smart metering and roof mounted solar panels.

3 Circle Square will open onto Symphony Gardens, a new landscaped space designed to complement Symphony Park, which promotes biodiversity across the wider Circle Square development. High-quality amenities including cycle and shower facilities will also be included to encourage green travel.
