The Client

Mansford LLP

The Challenge

Barton Arcade is a Grade II listed shopping and office complex situated on Deansgate in the heart of Manchester. Our client wanted to transform the two empty caretaker’s flats into one luxury apartment. Due to its location on the roof of the Arcade the apartment was only accessible via a lift to the third floor and then a staircase onto the roof. Other than access difficulties the client had a ten week window for the works to be completed.

The Solution

Strip out of the existing fixtures and fittings was relatively straight forward. However, once out of the apartment and stored on the roof getting the waste away from site required careful timing to ensure office tenants and the general public were not affected by our activities.

Materials needed to be brought into the project with equal consideration and this included a Porcelanosa bathroom and a kitchen.

The Result

The apartment, although relatively simple in its specification was completed to a high standard. The use of quality materials to worktops and bathrooms as suggested by Urbanise really increased the visual appeal of the spaces.
