Manchester relocation for architecture practice
A Manchester-based architecture practice has moved to larger city centre premises and expanded its workforce. Calderpeel Architects, whose designs include a newly submitted residential scheme on the former Itron gas meter factory site near Old Trafford, has moved to the XYZ Building in Spinningfields.
The Altrincham-headquartered company, which opened at That Space on Princess Street in Manchester about a year ago, has also brought Meg Tullis and Rebecca Mwanja on board to help roll out its plans for further growth. Headed up by director Mark Massey, the pipeline of work at Calderpeel's Manchester office will focus on projects in the residential and commercial sectors. "Manchester's residential sector is booming, with demand for full scale family homes in the city centre particularly high, so we're looking to grow by tapping into these markets further," said Massey. "As a practice, we're committed to designing world class spaces, so we're right at home in the XYZ Building. It'll help facilitate our plans for expansion within the city."
