100 Embankment Manchester
Salford’s Greengate neighbourhood has benefitted from extensive regeneration in recent years and includes a brand new business district at the heart of the scheme.
100 Embankment is the second building of a two-phased development on this vibrant site and this nine storey BREEAM Excellent Grade A building, provides 166,000ft2 of office space and sits alongside sister building, 101 Embankment.
PSP Architectural manufactured 192 panels for this project and the majority were produced on a flatbed CNC machine which offers high tolerances and very sharp folds, whilst the curved elements were bespoke fabrications. These A2 fire rated ACM feature channel panels included a backing support grid which was specified to ensure it allowed for thermal and floor movement but also for ease of installation onsite.

“PSP were extremely approachable and helpful in finding solutions to overcome technical glitches. Although being competitive is very important, perhaps more so was achieving the brief on this project. The architects intent asked for panels up to 6m long which would achieve a flatness that would avoid the appearance of ‘oil-canning’. In addition, the panels had to be sufficiently robust so as not to distort when being manhandled into position. PSP achieved all of this while remaining competitive and meeting the tight timescales. After this experience we are confident that our relationship will last for a very long time.”
