Project Description

3 St. Peter’s Square is a new 20 storey hotel building in the heart of Manchester. The building will be occupied by both Motel One (hotel) and Staycity (aparthotels).

The architectural aspiration was for a highly glazed elevation along the Ground Floor elevation facing Back George Street which presented an external fire spread issue across an existing narrow road. Our thermal radiation assessment enabled a much larger percentage of glazing than fire safety guidance would typically allow.

Further work involved enabling open plan apartments by adopting a hob suppression system, maximising occupant load for amenity floors and rationalising the provision for basement smoke exhaust.
