Designs for the new Hilti HQ

Manchester Contractor, CubicWorks, has been appointed by Hilti as main contractor on the fit-out of its new 42,000 sq ft UK HQ offices at No.1 Circle Square in Manchester.

Construction and software specialist Hilti is relocating its Manchester base from 1 Trafford Wharf in Trafford Park into the second, third and fourth floors of the 235,000 sq ft No.1 Circle Square, which is the first commercial building delivered by Bruntwood SciTech and Vita Group at the Oxford Road development in Manchester’s Innovation District.

CBRE was appointed by Hilti back in 2017 to deliver a full suite of relocation services and is providing turn key project services including project and cost management, engineering services, sustainability and principal designer consultancy services, while working with architect and interior design partner, tp bennett.

CubicWorks has now commenced work on the offices which will feature spacious open areas, to encourage communication and facilitate more flexible, collaborative and modern working for Hilti’s team.

Chris Howson, project manager at CBRE, said: “CBRE has been working with Hilti on their relocation project for the last three years and it’s great to see all the hard work and commitment coming together to create a fantastic office space.

“Relocating from Trafford Park to Circle Square is a big move for Hilti and the scheme is testament to their commitment to their staff. We’re looking forward to working with CubicWorks to deliver the scheme and provide Hilti with a market-leading head office in one of the most sought after locations in the city.”

Mark Spavin, director of CubicWorks, said: “CubicWorks are extremely excited to be awarded such a prestigious scheme working for Hilti and alongside the project team led by CBRE.

“This exciting partnership will deliver an amazing space within Circle Square, which is a new neighbourhood at the heart of Manchester’s Innovation District.

“We thrive on our partnership approach to delivery and we are looking forward to working together with brand aligned companies that share similar values and ethos. We look forward to strengthening the relationship with CBRE and Hilti and developing our connections further.”
