The 111 Piccadilly Project
Leading property company Bruntwood, has over 117 properties across Manchester, Leeds, Liverpool and Birmingham, offering everything from a virtual office and coworking through to managed and leased office space and an extensive retail portfolio.
Komfort were appointed to assist with the refurbishment of Bruntwood’s 111 Piccadilly in Manchester.
A landmark building totalling 3,840sq ft over 17 storeys, 111 Piccadilly is located in the heart of the city centre and a recognisable member of the city’s skyline. The building’s location is ideal for commuters, next door to Manchester Piccadilly railway station which handles over 1,000 train movements every day with passengers making more than 22 million journeys to and from the station every year.
The Brief in Brief
This project involved the refurbishment of several key spaces within this large office building.
The main focus points were to improve internal aesthetics and to enhance the customer experience of the building. Both Brown and Bancroft and Bridge Architects were contracted to create calm, contemporary and exciting office spaces. To ensure business continuity during the refurbishment, the work was carried out in phases.
To help meet this dynamic brief, Komfort’s Kross Glaze was installed on the 5th floor. Kross glaze is a development of our existing systems (Polar Single Glazed / Polar Double Glazed and 600 series) but provides a design solution to the recent trend of industrial glazing within residential and commercial interiors. Kross Glaze is an intelligent solution for offices where space is precious.
The end result
The renovated landmark building provides inspiring spaces. With the help of Komfort’s product offerings, the refurbishment of this extraordinary building certainly met the brief of creating a modern, light and contemporary office environment. The panoramic views of Manchester from the top floor are exceptional. We look forward to working closely with Bridge Architects and Brown and Bancroft on future projects.
