July, 2016Measuring Up to The Triangle

Work is to begin on the final £30m transformation of Manchester’s historic Corn Exchange, one of the most distinctive and challenging buildings we have had the pleasure of measuring up to. 

Met Consultancy provided a full topographical and measured building survey including floor plans for all levels, external elevations, roof plans and drainage survey with CCTV inspection to inform Its first phase redevelopment which saw the original trading floor revamped as a new dining destination with 17 new and retained restaurants opening under the glazed domes on all three faces of the building.

The grade II-listed building has had many incarnations since it was built in 1807, from Corn & Produce Exchange to indoor market and subsequent redevelopment as a modern shopping centre known as The Triangle Building following damage caused by the IRA bomb in 1996, with its most recent use being as offices.

Now this final restoration phase for owner Aviva will add a new 114-bedroom aparthotel on the upper floors and re-open the original grand main entrance, securing the future of this magnificent  old  building in the heart of the city.
