Plot 3500 Manchester Business Park
Goodman, PZ Cussons
This headquarters building for PZ Cussons is located at the entrance to Manchester Business Park, and has been designed to create a striking entrance into the park. A contemporary approach has been adopted for the envelope to the front of the L-shaped building, with a curtain walling spanning full height to the south and south-west elevations, brise soleil has also been incorporated. The entrance area is articulated by pre-cast reconstituted stone panelling with a vertical emphasis. The building envelope to the rear and sides is differentiated from the front by the use of facing brick work with ribbon windows. The L-shaped configuration was designed with a central core area to create two wings to the building, to facilitate potential sub-division in the future.
