QS – Manchester Education Centre

Project: Manchester Education Centre

Project Type: Quantity Surveying

Project Value: £3m

Client Name: Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints

Contractors: CP UK Ltd

Architect: Pickard Finlason

Project Brief:

The works comprised the erection of a new build 5-storey building to provide an educational centre for the LDS church to cater for the needs of Manchester’s university students and local youth community groups.

The building is located in Manchester city centre just off Oxford Road, next to the Manchester Aquatic Centre.  The building process was complex with a restricted site and the need for extensive piled foundations due to the discovery of unforeseen ground conditions during the construction.

As with all LDS projects carried out by Glovers, a high quality finish was required throughout.

The building was designed to a BREEAM ‘Very Good’ rating.
