The four-star Renaissance Hotel in Manchester has been closed since July 2020, while the owners work tirelessly to redevelop the original hotel tower, instead of demolishing and rebuilding it.
This unique transformation is a sustainable project being spearheaded by the Property Alliance Group and will see the regenerated hotel go to market as part of the SH Hotels & Resorts. Upon completion the 216-bedroom hotel will operate under the ‘Treehouse’ brand and will be part of the proposed wider $320 million redevelopment of the Deansgate site. This will be the second Treehouse Hotel in the United Kingdom (UK), following the first, in London.
BG&E is providing structural engineering and materials technology services for the proposed innovative regeneration. Specifically, a clever technical solution that will considerably decrease the embodied carbon emissions of the development and help the owners and operators to achieve BREEAM Certification.
The forecast environmental benefits are considerable and will generate around 40 per cent less CO2, compared to constructing a new build hotel of the same size.
