CWC working with HINES

Historic Building, Modern Retailers

Work continues at the Manchester Royal Exchange as Hines look to convert vacant units along Cross Street, including the former Nationwide bank, into food and drink usage after appointing Colliers and Metis as joint agents to fill the remaining retail space at the grade two-listed building in Manchester.

CWC have supported the project by conducting a site wide review of the retail servicing strategy, aimed at accommodating the demands of modern retail spaces within the constraints of an historic, grade II listed building.

CWC developed various solutions for discretely providing mechanical ventilation and cooling through the use of original architectural features of the building, with minimal interference on the building structure.
