One Angel Square Manchester
by 3D Reid for the Co-Operative Group
One Angel Square is an award-winning £100 million low-energy, highly sustainable new headquarters for the Co-operative Group in Manchester city centre. Twelve distinct Co-operative businesses are accommodated within One Angel Square headquarters building, a step change in efficiency compared with the starting situation, which had the Co-operative’s premises spread across 8 separate buildings and a total of 65 floors.
The building is designed to facilitate an ambitious programme of change and transformation within the workplace, introducing flexible working practices, offering choices about how and where staff can work. At 500,000ft² this is the largest commercial office building in Manchester, and with a BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ rating, scoring 95.16%, sets a new national benchmark in sustainable design within the commercial sector. We designed the project using the latest BIM software and techniques.
