SES regional operations director Paul Beaumont  said: “This is an exciting development for the city of Manchester and one which we are delighted to be working on with Bowmer + Kirkland and the rest of the project team.  MEPC is a forward-thinking developer driven by a desire to construct buildings that are highly sustainable and produce healthy workplaces for the mutual benefit of the occupiers and the wider community as well as the environment. 

“We will use our experience of delivering smart buildings, which provide tenants with the ability to perform all sorts of actions such as book meeting rooms and cycle and parking spaces, as well as control heating and lighting from their smartphones and tablets, to ensure the most up-to-date technology is installed. This will help us to deliver a building that meets with the client’s aspirations for a net zero carbon operational building.”

Bowmer & Kirkland contract manager Paul Neilson added: “It is important to us that we appoint project partners, such as SES, that share our vision and innovative approach to ensure that we deliver great buildings that not only meet the needs of the developer but are also extremely attractive to occupiers.  Thanks to a joined up sustainable approach to the construction of 4 Angel Square, I am confident that the building will more than meet expectations.”
