Project due to complete next May

Graham has been handed a deal to complete the fit-out of a new studio and office complex in Manchester.

E-commerce company THG has chosen the firm to deliver the interior fit-out of its Icon Studios and Icon Offices at Airport City in Manchester.

The firm will help create 376,000 sq ft of office and studio space spread over the 12-acre business campus.

The total Airport City Manchester development is around 5 million sq ft, with a total development value of £1bn. The site is made up offices, advanced manufacturing and logistics facilities, along with hotels and retail.

THG will be the anchor occupier of this development, with the content creation studio sitting at the heart of the development.

Designed by Penson, the fit-out programme starts this month and is scheduled for handover in May 2021.

The wider project team includes Edmond Shipway as employers agent and cost consultant, Penson as interior designer and WSP, who are the MEP, fire, structural and acoustic consultants.

Graham is currently carrying out work across the Pennines in Leeds for the Leeds Building Society’s new headquarters in the middle of the city.
