Quorum Estates has started on site at Stockport Homes’ new 53,000 sq ft headquarters building in Stockport town centre. MF Finnigan has been appointed as demolition contractor.
MF Finnigan will clear the former car salesroom and adjacent vacant industrial buildings in Edward Street opposite Stockport Town Hall.
Designed by AEW Architects, the building will see the consolidation of Stockport Homes’ existing services into one modern building.
Demolition is expected to last 12 weeks and Quorum is due to announce the main contractor next month.
The new building will be ready for occupation by spring 2017.
Paul Cook, director of Quorum, said: “Since securing planning for this new landmark scheme, we have continued to work closely with Stockport Homes and Stockport Council. The demolition marks the official start towards the delivery of this exciting and important town centre building.
“We now intend to work up detailed plans for phase two and three of the scheme which will ensure the comprehensive redevelopment of the whole Edward Street site.”
