Design Challenges: Windmill Green - An Innovative Retrofit with a Social Impact

Design Challenges: Windmill Green

Join us for this online event to hear from Yvette Hanson, Principal Director, Leanne Wookey, Director and Vicki Odili, Project Director at tp bennett, about the award-winning retrofit project for the FORE Partnership at Windmill Green in Manchester’s Civic Quarter, including a section on Net Zero Carbon.

Occupying a prime location, this underused 1970s office building was due to be demolished but has been redesigned and refurbished to provide 80,000sq ft of high-quality offices and to better fit into the historic streetscape. With its striking glazed green terracotta tile façade, communal roof terrace, public realm improvements and semi-public storeys, the building has been transformed into an ultra-sustainable mixed-use office building which is also home to Manchester’s largest living wall.

Winning several awards for social impact and innovation, it is now home to several new tenants including Hana, whose fit-out will also be explored.

This event is free for members and £10 for non-members to attend.
