PLOT 9a FIRST
STREET

Introducing the next phase of development here at First Street, Plot 9a will be another stunning addition to our top quality office portfolio. Offering occupiers 130,900 sq ft of high-specification office, retail and leisure space, the building will set a new benchmark for quality in the city.

neT zero carbon office

Designed by architects Jon Matthews Associates, the Grade A office scheme will provide ground floor flexible amenity space, and 9 upper floors of open plan and flexible office space, all complemented by integrated winter gardens, roof terraces and extensive landscaping and public realm works.

The result will be one of Manchester’s finest office buildings designed to comfortably accommodate the changing needs of 21st century businesses and their staff.

SPECIFICATION

Whilst the Grade A building will be BCO compliant, there will be lots of other associated benefits from co-working spaces to winter gardens on every floor, to flexible amenity space and outdoor terraces.

BCO Compliant specification
  • Built to an occupation density of 1.8m2
  • Exposed service finish to the ceiling (floor to ceiling height 3.76m with exposed services)
  • Raised Floor 150mm
  • Four Pipe Fan coil system controlling heating, cooling and fresh air requirement
  • Dedicated indoor loading bay
  • Toilets designed as super loos

Winter Gardens

Each floor will also benefit from private Winter Gardens providing further amenity space within the building.  These gardens which provide visual, social and working amenity on the floors, can be used for a multitude of purposes, as alternative working environments or as collaborative breakout spaces.

 

Roof Terrace

The top floor of the building provides a communal outdoor terrace off a small indoor pavilion space to be used by all occupiers of the building. The terraces are highly flexible and easy to adapt for social and business events or to offer a refreshing change of scenery for meetings and individual working.

  • storage of 270 cycles

Sustainability

The building has been designed with sustainability at it’s heart and will utilise the latest technologies to achieve Net Zero Carbon in operation standards with a 5.5* NABERS rating.  Built in accordance with WELL guidelines means our sustainability and wellness strategy across the building ensures it is environmentally responsive to meet market demands.

 

BREEAM

We are committed as a minimum to achieving BREEAM Excellent standard with an EPC Rating B.

 

CUNDALL

Our sustainability strategy for the building is being conducted with our consultant, Cundall.  Some of the options we are looking to implement are:

  • Early adoption of the Greater Manchester Spacial Framework which aims for all buildings to be net zero carbon by 2028.
  • Use of battery technology to take the pressure off the National Grid Peak demand.
  • Designing for Climate Change.
  • Use of recycled materials in construction and reduction of plastic use.
