Commercial interior design, build and delivery specialist, ADT Workplace is set to create a new office for leading business and financial advisor, Grant Thornton UK LLP in the heart of Manchester.
The company has selected a 13,143 sq.ft space located in the centre of the city’s thriving business district, in the prestigious BREEAM Excellent Landmark Building at St Peter’s Square. Boasting open plan floor plates, which will allow Grant Thornton to tailor it to its requirements and unique vision, the impressive space also benefits from a panoramic external terrace, a rarity and unique selling point in inner-city office working.
Having acknowledged the accelerant in workplace culture brought about due to the pandemic, Grant Thornton is looking to create a contemporary space which will allow its 350-strong Manchester-based team to adopt to a new flexible way of working, by offering multiple settings for collaboration and private working, as well as a range of amenities to support employee wellbeing.
Following a competitive tender process, the team selected ADT Workplace as its partner for the project, which is due for completion in October. The company will be providing a wide scope of services including workplace consultancy, conceptual design, detailed and architectural design, mechanical and electrical design, cost and project management, and aftercare, to help Grant Thornton create an office fit for present and future requirements.
Commenting on the project, David Clemetson, ADT Workplace co-founder said: “We’re delighted to be delivering this new workplace for Grant Thornton, our second project within the impressive Landmark building. It’s fantastic to partner with an organisation which has recognised the value of providing a top quality workplace environment for its people, which supports their wellbeing and allows for flexible working. Importantly, Grant Thornton has also acknowledged the importance of providing a space which both the team and visitors feel comfortable, safe and welcome in as they prepare for a new much more flexible way of working post-pandemic.”
