We were instructed to project manage the redevelopment of the vacant Grade II Listed Courthouse building at Deansgate, Manchester.

A planning strategy which ‘front loaded’ the planning application process identifying all design , commercial constraints early in the planning process in the first instance and incorporating technical and sustainability issues within the design agenda from the outset. 

Early resolution of impediments to the proposals ensured the delivery of a viable and commercially attractive scheme.  A number of high profile occupiers have now been secured for The Courthouse, demonstrating our ability to deliver on challenging multidisciplinary projects.

Key skills utilised:

  • Planning Application Management
