City West Office, Eccles

Project Type: Office

The City West Office development is a 2/3 storey office building located centrally in Eccles, Salford. City West’s aim was to house all staff and customers from their two separate offices under one flagship office roof allowing customers to easily access the housing trust to meet with officers and break down any access and convenience barriers which previously existed.

The development comprises a new Eccles Area Housing Office at ground floor with a large 2-storey glazed entrance atrium running from front to back. Within the ground floor space there are informal meeting areas and information points as well as private meeting booths for customers. Upper levels provide ‘agile working’ spaces, meeting facilities and a large adaptable conference suite opening out onto an external terrace and green roof.

The building’s elevation integrates a number of programmable LED panels allowing them to change and respond to any local or national events. The building has achieved BREEAM Very Good status by incorporating rooftop photovoltaic panels, a green roof and high performance glazing.
