93-95 Shude Hill, Manchester

This former five storey mill was converted to provide residential accommodation above retail space at ground floor with basement storage. A two storey vertical extension was added to provide contemporary loft style apartments. The existing basement was essentially refurbished to provide a controlled dry environment, free from damp for the storage of stock.

TRP Consulting carried out the initial surveys and investigations prior to the commencement of detailed design. The detailed proposals made extensive use of the existing floor finishes, joists and beams that were strengthened to improve their load carrying capacity, acoustic performance and dynamic response.
