WeWork and an enterprise client partnered with us to deliver a co-working space at Hanover House in Manchester, within a 20-week fast-track programme.

Take a look around

This flexible workspace provides WeWork with a large co-working space along with an enterprise client to create their first UK corporate office outside of London. They needed a team that could meet their high standards, bringing their vision to life as quickly as possible. And so that became our mission.

Working as a partnership with complete transparency has always been the TSK way, we spent the first three weeks tailoring and correcting the original design pack – making design, development and coordinated adjustments so that we were ready for construction. We worked closely with WeWork’s design team & the wider client team & specialists, honing the design together. Clear communication helped the project to run as smoothly as possible, preventing any unnecessary delays and ensured a high-quality delivery.

Their impressive 98,000 sq.ft new co-working space, encourages innovation, productivity and community with a vibrant blend of historic architecture and modern amenities. We completed the build at the end of November 2019, with the bottom three floors finished in December, and the the top three floors during the second week of January 2020.

Facing challenges head-on

Facing challenges head-on

The challenges of delivering the fit-out within Hanover House were many and varied, from the simple task of managing logistics and materials through the building (when the main staircase had listed wall tiles), through to the challenge of modifying and adapting the MEP services to a specific tenant layout, with distribution throughout the differing levels through the building.

The biggest challenge however, was the construction of the internal spaces, ensuring that the exacting performance standards were able to be delivered without compromise, with consideration and respect to the existing architecture and services.

"The feedback from the team has been overwhelmingly positive."

A fast-track delivery

A fast-track delivery

Initially, WeWork and an enterprise client had been discussing the project with contractors that were looking at 40-44 weeks to complete the programme. Specialising in fast-track fit-outs, we were confident that we could deliver the project in 20-weeks – and so we did!
