One New Bailey Salford

An Aluprof Case Study

One New Bailey is a new office development in Salford on the north bank of the River Irwell, situated next to Spinningfields and close to the Lowry Hotel. The development is part of New Bailey, a new business and leisure hub within the growing area of Salford Central and offers 125,000 sq ft of prime commercial space adjacent to Manchester's central business district.

Aluprof's MB-SR50N EFEKT Curtain Wall System

Aluprof’s capless curtain wall system, the advanced MB-SR50N EFEKT was used on all elevations of the new build. The fabrication and installation of the curtain wall was undertaken by CSi, Commercial Systems International, of Humberside. Stuart Green, Managing Director of CSi comments on the installation: “We are proud to be a part of such a prestigious project in the heart of Salford’s new central business district. Our installation team completed a top notch installation and we are looking forward to working with contractor Bowmer & Kirkland on future projects."

The MB-SR50N EFEKT system is used for the construction of lightweight curtain walls traditionally installed as well as roof applications, skylights and other spatial constructions. Its supporting structure is based on a modern, tried-and-tested mullion and transom aluminium system MB-SR50N.

MB-SR50N EFEKT Curtain Wall System

The MB-SR50N EFEKT is a facade that provides a uniform external appearance of a smooth glass wall divided by the structure of vertical and horizontal lines of 2 cm, thanks to the use of a special system for fixing panes to mullions and transoms. The gaps between glass fields of the facade are filled with a special silicon binder to ensure high tightness of the construction and enhance its insulation properties.

One New Bailey, was developed by English Cities Fund (ECf), working closely with Salford Council and is funded and owned by Legal & General. The building was designed by Aedas RHWL architects, who also are responsible for the masterplan of the area. With large, regular and efficient floorplates, averaging over 17,000 sq ft (net), designed specifically for flexibility and to facilitate split tenancies, One New Bailey development has achieved a Grade A, BREEAM 'Excellent' rating. Leading international law firm Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer has announced that it will be leasing 80,000 sq ft within the building as the long term base for its Global Centre.

The highly anticipated Menagerie restaurant will occupy one of the ground floor units, making this a truly mixed use scheme.

ECf is a joint venture between Muse Developments, Legal & General and the Homes and Communities Agency.
