Townscape Town Planning and Heritage Consultants Ltd were invited by this new client to help bring a subtle upgrade to the Great John Street Hotel in central Manchester. The hotel which is a former school is grade II listed and benefited from a superb conversion a few years ago. However, to improve guests liveability and enjoyment of the hotel a few minor improvements were sought such as secondary double glazing (Manchester is awash with large construction sites creating noise), an external glazed seating area (located on a side street where the wind is tunnelled) and enlargement to the rooftop terrace and canopy (former playground to the school).
Whilst these minor improvements perhaps go unnoticed amongst the raft of gleaming new buildings currently ‘popping’ up in central manchester. Subtle changes to the Historic Environment always ensure that our built heritage can match, and as in the Great John St Hotel case exceed many other high class hotels in Central Manchester in offering service, quality and of course character.
For business owners of such prestigious hotels and indeed owners of Listed Buildings, it is essential that they achieve the right results, first time, saving time and money and being able to programme in works. Townscape www.townscape.org.uk are successful in not only giving the correct advice but also in securing the relevant planning consents so works can commence according to plan and timeline.
