A major mixed-use development delivered by the English Cities Fund. It is adjacent to the River Irwell and opposite Manchester’s internationally renowned Spinningfields business district.
The English Cities Fund was created to pave the way for higher levels of private investment, helping to reshape our towns and cities. The Fund takes stalled sites and transforms them into dynamic urban communities which local authorities and the local communities can be proud of. The aim of these regeneration schemes is to create new homes, employment and business opportunities and 2 New Bailey has done just that.
Comprising of large open floor plates of up to 18,379 sq ft, private outdoor terraces and complete with central toilet facilities on all floors it is built to the highest sustainability credentials with a ‘Grade A Excellent’ BREEAM rating. This forward-thinking development also includes a basement with changing and shower facilities, 102 bicycle spaces and is fibre-ready with a WiredScore Certified Platinum Rating.
Because we are a long-standing and financially stable business with a proven track record of delivering high-value projects, Bowmer & Kirkland trusted us to work along-side them as part of their team and awarded us the 2 new Bailey project with work commencing in February 2020. This was just before the COVID-19 national lockdown was announced and, despite the challenges we then faced arising from lockdown issues within our supply chain, social distancing protocols on site and ‘work from home’ rules, we strived to complete the programme on time… and we succeeded!

Any design issues have been resolved with a positive attitude and have never affected the tight programme. Deliveries have all arrived on time. Inscape Interiors are a credit to the industry.” Bowmer & Kirkland’s Senior Site manager.
The high specification design brief required by the client was fully met and will provide manyyears of use to the many working occupants of the building The cubicle doors were made from real wood veneers, all cut from the same tree to ensure the knots and shading of the timber was consistent, complete with hardwood edges offering fully private enclosed toilet facilities. The internal dividers and IPS duct systems were designed in a striking yellow to contrast with the external appearance. The washrooms were finished with mirrored wall units in timber framed surrounds, completing the room with a modern twist on a tradition look.
