The £20m Tomorrow Building is a new co-working and creative workspace aimed at Manchester’s creative, digital, media and broadcasting sectors – with a 112-bed Premier Inn on its upper floors.
FK Group was awarded the full building envelope package for this prestigious new development at the gateway to Salford’s MediaCityUK. The challenging build included the lifting and installation of very heavy glass units at up to half a tonne each as well as numerous night lifts and work.
The building also has high thermal and air tightness requirements.
