With an interlacing red brick façade in homage to Salford’s textile history, Three New Bailey Square is the third office development within the New Bailey masterplan.
The new building, designed by Make Architects, is now home to HM Revenue & Customs on a 25-year lease. Construction started on site in early 2019 and completed ready for fit-out 2021.
Three New Bailey will comprise of the ground floor and 6 storeys of office space spread over 157,000 sq ft. The design of the BREEAM “Excellent” development takes reference from local historic architecture and its inherent craftsmanship. One such design detail is the striking façade’s brickwork running cleanly around corners, enhancing visible solidity. The complex yet subtle façade combines a range of treatments including two types of weave – basket and twill – plus a distinctive perforated screen at roof level.
A new piazza at the front of the building welcomes passengers exiting Salford Central train station.
Wintech provided Façade Consultancy services on the project; assisting with the delivery of the striking façade, providing specifications, design audits and site surveys and advising on the buildability.
