Media City Uk  Bupa  Oct 2016 B

Construction starts on Chapman Taylor’s latest office design at MediaCityUK

Construction work has started on site for the new BCO Grade A office building, designed by Chapman Taylor, for Bupa’s headquarters located at MediaCityUK, Salford.

The new six storey building is designed to achieve a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ accreditation and will provide 150,000 sq ft. of Grade A office accommodation for approximately 2,000 staff; specifically tailored to BUPA’s specification. The building is fully glazed and incorporates an externally mounted brise soleil to the southern aspect that will create a striking new landmark on the MediaCityUK waterfront.

The new BUPA Office building, including Cat B fit out, is due for completion in Q1 2018.

This commission continues Chapman Taylor’s masterplanning and architectural design and delivery roles in the region following the completion of the first phase of MediaCityUK which was officially opened by The Queen in 2012. Completing earlier this year, Chapman Taylor also designed and delivered the ‘Tomorrow’ building at MediaCityUK. The state of the art mixed-use building offers 54,000 sq ft. of creative work space for digital and creative businesses over 7 levels, together with a 112-bed hotel on the upper levels.

In early 2015 Chapman Taylor was also appointed to develop the masterplan for the second phase of MediaCityUK on the 7.7 hectare site, as well as design a number of buildings including a 477 unit residential PRS scheme, Grade A office space, multi-storey parking, live/work studio apartments, bicycle hub and a new energy centre. Planning permission for the scheme was achieved in September this year.
