Illuminating three sides of the iconic building, it will be visible from across the city centre, while a striking new ‘gem’ structure will also be added to transform the shape of the entrance. The ground-breaking lighting concept will incorporate LEDs throughout and will be powered by sustainable energy via photovoltaics. The photovoltaics will also support the power generation for the ground floor of the building. 

Customer health and wellbeing will be improved through a new cutting-edge circadian lighting system, designed to create a natural environment regulating a 24-hour cycle of sleep, wake, hunger, alertness, hormone release and body temperature.  

Biophilic design will also be incorporated to create a healthy and productive workplace, with internal planting and greenery displayed throughout, enhanced natural lighting and extensive use of natural materials.  

Ciara Keeling, CEO for Bruntwood Works, said: We’re extremely excited to progress our plans for 111 Piccadilly. Located in the heart of Manchester, we believe it will create an incredible gateway into the city centre. From amazing cutting-edge technology to sustainable features and a new stunning illuminated exterior, it is set to make a major impact on Manchester. 

111 Piccadilly is part of Bruntwood Work’s £50m Pioneer – a customer-focused building transformation programme aimed at transforming a number of its key buildings across the North and Midlands, and is set to become the first co-working space in the UK and one of the first in Europe to achieve Platinum standard WELL certification.
