Rochdale Municipal Offices, Manchester

Rochdale MBC

RPS provided Building Services for a first-class office space and retail and leisure hub as part of an ambitious project for the regeneration of Rochdale town centre

The 28,000m2 development of council and NHS office space includes a new public library and customer services point.

The riverside offices were built on the former Yelloway bus depot’s riverside site and accommodates approximately 2,000 employees from the council and partner organisations. RPS provided expert Mechanical & Electrical engineering advice for the building, helping it achieve its target of an ‘Excellent’ BREEAM rating. RPS also provided Acoustics and Fire Engineering expertise on the project.

This is the second Local Authority Headquarters office project awarded to RPS in recent times with the firm currently providing the same services on Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council’s new 40,000ft2 office building.
