Abbey House, Manchester

Abbey House, Manchester is located opposite the Grade 1 listed Manchester Art Gallery. Together with clients Booth Street Property Company and AHR Architects, Wintech assisted in delivering a complete re-glaze from the first floor up with a full Façade Design and Consultancy package.

The process involved removing the existing windows along with the blockwork below and replacing them with ladder curtain walls. The change of stonework on the historic Moseley Street development has completely transformed the original building. The new glazed elements have been designed to enhance the external appearance as well as the internal environment through the removing of solid spandrel panels to create floor to ceiling glazing into the office areas, resulting in increased natural daylight entering the space.
