Co-op delays NOMA move until New Year

The Co-operative Group has pushed back the date for occupation of its new Manchester head office until the New Year.

The £100m One Angel Square, the anchor first phase of the wider NOMA redevelopment in the city centre, was due to start welcoming staff in the next few weeks, but the Co-op said "a delay in the installation and testing of certain mechanical, electrical and IT systems means the move could not begin before the busy trading period around Christmas."

Martyn Hulme, managing director of the Co-operative Estates, said: "One of the key elements of the moving process is that we maintain business continuity – particularly during the busiest period for our food operation – and as such we will now start the move in the New Year."

The 325,000 sq ft office was designed by 3D Reid and is being built by Bam.
