Trafford, Manchester Central Office Accommodation Case Study

Architectural Consultancy: New / Refurbished Central Office Accommodation
Location: Trafford, Manchester.
Client: Trafford Metropolitan Borough Council
Contract Sum: N/A Public Sector Architectural Consultancy



AKA have been working with Trafford Borough Council for the provision of new council offices and full refurbishment of the existing Grade 2 listed town hall at Old Trafford.

As part of major restructuring of Trafford Metropolitan Borough Council AKA developed a brief with the Client to provide new office accommodation to incorporate new and modern ways of working and deliver efficiency savings.

In addition to this sustainable design and energy efficiency along with a modern working environment were of key importance.

The finalized proposals are based around four distinct components as follows:

  • The sensitive refurbishment of the existing town hall to create high quality meeting, conference, training and dining facilities for office workers as well as the wider community.
  • 35,000 sqft of new sustainable office space accommodated within three, 2 storey wings.
  • A new highly transparent public reception and elegantly clad conference facility fronting Warwick Road. A two storey high “Internal street” which acts as the main organiser of the building and around which all three of the above components are hung.

AKA have also recently been appointed to provide additional architectural consultancy and project monitoring services throughout the construction works.

Anthony Keith Architects Limited can assist in the pre-design stage of projects by helping the Client to develop project briefs and models using interactive
programmes and schedules to test options.
