Bills of Quantities
Manchester New Square
Located on the corner of Whitworth Street and Princess Street, the attractively landscaped New Square is a tranquil, mixed-use conservation area which surrounds three residential buildings and a canal-side amenity space.
Walker Sime produced the measurements and bills for the project in its entirety.
The redevelopment will create high-quality constructions to complement and enhance the existing historic context. Reconnecting surrounding areas, such as Rochdale Canal, in a sensitive and considerate manner.
At ground level the site will contain a mixture of artisan restaurants and retailers, alongside a private residents’ gym, lounge, secure basement car and cycle parking and 24/7 concierge.
A key constraint was a pre-existing four-storey basement, which was retained, meaning key construction elements had to be considered – there was also a cadaver discovered on-site when groundworks had commenced.
Façade treatments and modern architectural language was carefully adapted to provide distinctive character and allow for closer, more fitting integration with surrounding buildings.
