Redevelopment of Granada TV studios underway
Once the home of Granada Television (later ITV Granada), Manchester’s famous TV studios are being redeveloped into a new mixed-use scheme and steelwork is nearing completion on one of the first new offices blocks.
Working on behalf of Bowmer + Kirkland, EvadX is erecting 550t of steel for a 10-storey commercial block on the site of the former annex building, which used to accommodate dressing rooms and the make-up department.
The steel-framed structure measures 50m-long x 11m-wide, and it will accommodate around 6,000m2 of office space, along with retail units at ground and lower ground floor.
Creating the desired column-free and flexible office spaces, a series of Westok cellular beams span between the building’s perimeter columns, forming each of the floors without any internal support.
The office block is due to complete in October.
