Manchester landmark to undergo ‘neo’ redesign
Dragonfly Contracts Ltd has been announced as principal contractor for the £8 million refurbishment of the Manchester, UK, landmark development, ‘neo’.
Formerly known as Bank House, the 12 storey building on Charlotte Street, Manchester, is to undergo a complete transformation in a bid to become developer Bruntwood’s most evolved workspace out of its 145-strong property portfolio.
Upon completion, the build will feature new curtain walling and a complete refurbishment of the reception and common areas. All 12 floors will also be refurbished with the first three accommodating a fully curated digital art space, innovatively-design co-working space, a lounge area, roof terrace, kitchen, and studio offices. With purposeful design-thinking at its core, neo will create spaces for collaboration, helping businesses to grow as part of a vibrant community of entrepreneurs.
Dragonfly Contracts Ltd, provider of interiors solutions and office furniture and supply and installation across several B2B sectors, has worked on several previous projects including the Pullman Hotel in Liverpool and Manchester’s Central Library and Town Hall development, which was recently recipient of a RIBA North West Award.
Joe McKenna, Director of Dragonfly, said: "We have been working with Bruntwood for six years and striving hard towards a project of this size. Being awarded the neo contract truly is a game-changer for Dragonfly as it is recognition of the investment we've made and what we have been trying to achieve as a business."
