Idom Merebrook wins Bradford refurbishment
The Manchester office of engineering consultancy Idom Merebrook has been appointed by Pinnacle (Bradford) to manage the outlined design for all M&E services for the Xchange building in Bradford. Previously known as Arndale House, the project will convert this commercial building into a modern residential focal point for the city.
The refurbishment is due to be complete at the beginning of 2017 and will convert this 1960s office block into a mix of retail and residential developments over nine floors, with space for 126 apartments.
David Spacey, technical director at Idom's Manchester office. said, ‘The Xchange will be a prestigious, modern and high-spec development with an array of high-performance building services systems once complete. This is a challenging project for our team. The M&E needs of the building have been totally transformed, which has meant a complete redesign of the internal systems to meet residential requirements rather than commercial.’
