CBRE Global Investors wins commercial fit-out/refurbishment project of the year for 55 Spring Gardens

CBRE Global Investors has won Commercial Fit-Out / Refurbishment Project of the Year for 55 Spring Gardens in Manchester at the Insider Property North West Awards that took place in Manchester last week.

Insider North West Property Awards 2016 recognise the role of the occupier, developer and the professionals that create stand out workspaces. It seeks to highlight the importance of building refurbishments or fit-out and interior design in putting the regional property industry in front of its competitors.

Located in the heart of Manchester’s Central Business District, 55 Spring Gardens has eight floors of prime, contemporary and adaptable office workspace. It has a sky suite with a rooftop terrace and collaborative amenity space together with a new illuminated entrance.

Occupiers of 55 Spring Gardens, have been overwhelmingly positive and have commented on the ‘wow’ factor of the building including the availability of breakout and event space which is unique in Manchester.

Rob Trevor, Senior Director, UK Funds, CBRE Global Investors, said: “We are delighted to have been recognised for delivering an imaginative and first class scheme which has raised the standard for refurbishment in the Manchester office market. We have been overwhelmed by the positive response from agents and occupiers alike and pleased to have generated interest in the majority of the remaining space and to see further endorsement from the property professionals such as Turner and Townsend and Rapleys who have become the latest occupier to sign up as of today.”

The criteria for nominations were made on the basis that the property was in the North West businesses based on a SINGLE FIT OUT OR REFURBISHMENT contract completed in 2015 for a landlord, commercial business or government department. Entries were judged on whether the project brief was completed on time and on budget, what the entrant did to make the project stand out over and above what the brief asked for, such as a carbon-neutral delivery, any new design standards it sets and on positive responses from occupiers and their clients.
