Kingspan panels to be installed at No. 1 Spinningfields

Kingspan is due to start work in October installing over 25,000 sq m of access flooring at No. 1 Spinningfields, a 24 storey Grade A office development being built within Manchester’s premium business district.

The RMG 600 panels will be installed on levels 1 to 17 of the £73 million development, whose design and build contractors are BAM Construction. No. 1 Spinningfields is the largest commercial building under construction in Manchester and will be the tallest commercial building to be built in the city in the last 50 years.

Features of the building include a podium that cantilevers over adjoining streets, a premium business lounge and a roof-top restaurant 100m above the ground, opening onto a substantial garden terrace with panoramic views over the city. The D & D operated restaurant and terrace is described as “Manchester’s most glamorous operation yet” and will be complemented by No.1 Spinningfields' state-of-the-art business facilities, oyster and champagne bar and Marks and Spencer food hall.

The building will be constructed to a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ rating and as part of Kingspan’s commitment to sustainability, all panel off cuts will be recycled at the company’s Hull factory.
