The Tomorrow building at MediaCityUK is on track to complete this summer

Wp 20160316 002

The ‘Tomorrow’ project is a £20m state of the art mixed-use building designed by Chapman Taylor for the Peel Group and delivers 54,000 ft². of creative work space for digital and creative businesses over 7 levels, along with a 112-bed hotel on the levels above.

Construction work is progressing at a pace, with the external façade works nearing completion, the building will soon be watertight. The solar controlled glazing is almost complete and the brushed aluminium panels are now being installed. The finished product, complete with state of the art LED feature lighting, will be a striking new gateway to the MediaCityUK neighbourhood. Internally, the installation of the hotel’s modular bathroom pods is complete and the hotel bedrooms are being fitted out and decorated. The office floors are nearing completion, with exposed services, full height glazing and natural ventilation systems to provide the maximum comfort and control for the tenants in an energy efficient and sustainable way.

The innovative development seeks to attract further visitors into the creative MediaCityUK neighbourhood and act as an exciting new media hub offering flexible office space for new start-up businesses, and fast growing media creatives & digital companies.

The eleven storey building, with four floors dedicated to the new hotel, aims to reach BREEAM Excellent rating and capitalises on MediacityUK’s already established Tri-generation renewable district energy systems that benefit from canal water cooling and heat recovery from the local on-site electricity generation engines.

This latest design commission continues Chapman Taylor’s masterplanning and architectural role at MediaCityUK, having delivered the first phase of BBC offices, studio production facilities, an energy centre, car park, and new metrolink station on the Salford site in 2011.
