In 2020, we celebrated five years in Manchester. Based in the beautifully refurbished Northern Assurance Buildings overlooking Albert Square, our multi-disciplinary team is well-networked in the city and loves being part of Manchester’s dynamic business community.

The team includes civil and structural engineers, M&E and building services engineers, acousticians, fire engineers, transport planners and geo-environmental and geotechnical engineers.

For three consecutive years Hydrock has been an associate partner for Manchester at MIPIM, and we are active participants in the debate on how Manchester can meet its ambitious zero-carbon targets – Dilon Hilton spoke at an FBE event in 2019 on sustainability.

Our team in Manchester city centre have contributed to many projects across the city and the north-west including: advising Northern Group on an office and apartment scheme on Bengal Street in Manchester; working on a number of the Manchester Life schemes including Smith’s Yard; delivering site investigation work for the Metrolink extension to Trafford Park; and further afield in the north-west advising on Heysham Gateway and the former Cabot Carbon site in Ellesmere Port.
